Membership is a commitment to engage regularly in quality one-on-one social time with other members of our community. Quality time means being attentive to others while making an effort to be friendly, understanding, and to listen as well as share.

 

And of course, sharing can be much more fun when you’re taking virtual trips around the world together! We believe that by deliberately working to connect with others, we will improve personal and societal health and happiness.

Acquaint Conductors

If you are interested in both taking tours and guiding tours on a weekly basis, then the Conductor membership is perfect for you. Rather than paying a membership fee, which ranges from $0 - $9 per month depending on level, Conductors commit regular time and training to keep our community safe and accessible. Requirements for this level of membership include:

  • Train with our mentors to learn how to use the platform. Training covers technical skills (e.g. basic setup, troubleshooting) as well as interpersonal skills (e.g. active listening, communication).

  • Connect for a tour with a fellow community member at least once a week. This involves entering your availability every week, and the system will pair you with a tour partner based on the times  you enter.

  • Always do your best to offer a positive experience to your tour partner. This includes upholding community standards of respect, kindness and patience, thus maintaining a safe and welcoming environment.

  • Help spread the word about  our community and vision whenever possible. Outreach to friends, family, organizations, or members of your community allows us to grow and reach more people.​

  • (Optional) Help build virtual tours. This includes finding photos, reaching out to photographers, doing research, or writing scripts.

"When you create a safe space where people can tell their stories, people break out of their social isolation. But ‘safety’ is the watchword. A community of this sort needs a facilitator."
