Speed Friending: Milestone Meet-Up
Did you know that on average a person makes 396 friends throughout their entire lifespan but only 1 in 12 friendships last? Join LightHouse for Speed Friending, our first Milestone Meet-Up of 2020! Speed Friending is similar to Speed Dating with one major difference, the goal is not to make romantic connections. Instead Speed Friending is a place to meet new people and develop friendships. The connections that you make at this event could take a variety of shapes. You may find a gym buddy, a book lover, a fellow foodie to explore eateries with, your next BFF, or you may choose not to stay in contact with anyone you meet. The goal of this event is for you to begin to think consciously about building meaningful relationships through participating in activities that will allow you to have deeper conversations and a stronger sense of self-confidence when interacting with others. Since this event has a specific program and flow we request that you arrive on time and commit to stay for the entire event.
Who: Members of the LightHouse community and their guest. The LightHouse community includes; students, staff, volunteers, board members, etc. Each attendee can bring one guest.
What Will You Do?: Begin the evening with light refreshments and a networking mixer. Engage in a unique activity or discussion with each person you meet at the event. Make mutual connections with those you would like to stay in contact with after the event.
When: Friday February 7 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Where: LightHouse Headquarters, 1155 Market Street, San Francisco CA 94103
Cost: This event is free for San Francisco residents and $5 for everyone else including guests.
Be sure to wear something comfortable, as you will be moving throughout the event. Also, remember that LightHouse is a fragrance free space so refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes and other scented products.
