Make friends & collaborate on the next generation networking cafe!
Connecting Young Adults (16 to 18-year-olds) from around the world with a purpose to make friends across borders, broaden minds, appreciate cultural differences & develop an understanding of how local thoughts can lead to a global impact.
Cafe Session Structure
Each session will be one hour long, each Cafe-er (young adult) will have two minutes to introduce themselves and give their ideas/thoughts about the ’Theme/Topic of the Week’. Each break out room will have time to discuss the topic at hand or spend a little more time getting to know each other. We will try and bring in an inspirational/motivational speaker in each session for 5-7 minutes.
With every cafe session, you should walk away with 4 new friends from around the world! Every week, the winning idea and its winning Cafe-er will be featured on our social media, blog, and newsletter - such that your local thought can have a platform to make a global impact on the community!
We are fostering a community of Respect, Connection, and Encouragement across Planet Earth.
This is your platform, your space - Treat it with kindness please!
Cafe Session Guidelines
Please be respectful of different cultures and be intuitive when addressing tough topics, we are building a community of connection and encouragement.
We recommend you share only your social media contact details (Preferably Instagram Handle) in the networking cafe sessions if you wish to connect with your peer outside of Our Cafe Sessions. This should help maintain your privacy and absolute choice to be connected with.
Only reach out to those who were in your breakout room, and if you do wish to connect with anyone from the networking cafe session. Please drop them a message through social media only after requesting them individually for their details. Respect choice and privacy!
We are working constantly to make sure this is a safe space for young minds, so please be vary and cautious with connections outside of the Cafe’s virtual walls. We encourage parents and guardians to observe, participate in, and/or monitor and guide their online activity actively.
