Hello Fellow Changemakers,

Once again we will be partnering with the American Consulate's Refugee Outreach Committee. They are offering a one hour orientation and tour of the center for anyone interested in volunteering. This is such an exciting opportunity for InterNations Volunteers. You do not have to be a fluent German speaker, but a little knowledge is nice. It is a great time to practice with the refugees as they are learning too!

After the orientation they will host a celebration for the last day of Eid al-Adha (English: Festival of Sacrifice; German: Opferfest). Lunch will be served at 14:00. Traditional home-cooked dishes provided by the refugees. This is a once a year event and is sure to be a spectacular event for all the senses.

This is a family friendly event with a flexible end time. Feel free to leave right after the tour or stay for lunch and the Eid al-Adha celebration.

IMPORTANT NOTE
* By train: Take the U2 to the station Kalbach (if leaving from downtown Frankfurt, take it north in the direction of Bad Homburg/Nieder-Eschbach/Gonzenheim). After getting off at the station, walk south towards the crosswalk and cross the street. There will be a little path, between the east side of the train tracks and a fence, that is a shortcut to the center. Essentially, then you can follow the signs to the Alter Flugplatz (or Feuerwehrmuseum).

IF YOU CAN TRY BEST TO ARRIVE BY 12:30 EXACTLY OR A BIT EARLIER, THEY GROUP WILL BE WAITING AT THE GATE. IT WILL BE MUCH EASIER TO FIND YOUR WAY IF YOU ENTER WITH THE GROUP.

**The edge of the center has a large sign that says "Diakonie," which is the organization the runs the center. Go down the alleyway by the sign until reaching the gate, and we should be waiting right there.

*By car: (or walking from the U-Bahn station) set GPS to “Parkplatz Alter Flugplatz,” which is where you will park your car, next to the refugee center. The refugee center is visible from the Parkplatz, and is several modern-looking two-story apartment buildings surrounded by a chain-link fence.

Thank you
