Drop ins are available if there is still space in the class, check the ticket to see how many spaces remain. As this is a free event there are more tickets available than spaces in order to account for no shows. You must register to attend but this does not guarantee a seat.

    Established in 2015, this program provides Boiseans who arrived in the U.S. as refugees with training to engage in public dialogue, reach out to the community, and serve Boise on committees, groups, and boards. Boise’s Refugee Speakers Bureau hopes to educate the Boise community about the refugee experience through personal stories for the Idaho Office for Refugees, whose mission is to “promote mutual understanding between refugees and the larger community by sharing information, encouraging social interaction and developing opportunities for refugees to participate in all aspects of community life.”
