Philadelphia CouchSurfing Workshop
Posted April 26th, 2010 - 11:17 pm by from Philadelphia, United States (Permalink)
On Saturday, May 1st, the Philadelphia Ambassadors team will hold a Couchsurfing Workshop and Picnic in Washington Square Park in Center City. Whether you're a newbie on CS or have already been surfing and hosting for years, this Workshop will help you get acquainted or re-acquainted with CouchSurfing. Our topics will include:

-The basics of hosting and surfing, including how to find a compatible host and how to write a request, basic rules of etiquette, etc.
-The safety features of CS, include the reference system, verification, vouching, and the Member Dispute and Safety Team.
-The CouchSurfing project, including the organization's volunteers, leadership, and finances.
-CouchSurfing groups and events, including how to become active in local groups, the basics of creating and attending events, and participating in online groups.
-Answers to YOUR questions!

The workshop will be accompanied by a picnic lunch in the park, so we encourage you to bring lots of food and drink and whatever you'd like to share. (Just remember that alcohol is not permitted in the park, so plan or pack accordingly!)

The Workshop will begin in Washington Square Park on Saturday, May 1st, at 1:00 PM. We'll set up wherever we have room, so look sharp.

Our "instructors" will include myself as one of Philly's City Ambassadors, and Macnapier, our own resident Country Ambassador. However, we would be grateful for whatever help anyone can provide, so if you have substantial CS experience and would like to contribute, please get in touch with one of us! You can find our profiles on the Philadelphia group page.

We look forward to meeting many old and new faces, so please join us!
