Sojoourn Club

Experience the power of connections and  be inspired by the benefits of cultural diversity.

We created Sojoourn Club  to offer you a safe space to connect on a new platform, because we know you deserve more than just a Facebook group. With our regular and members-only events (physical or online) you can start building meaningful friendships.

We believe that especially right now, it is very important not to give up on human connections because everyone needs support and a place to connect and share ideas, happy moments or their struggle. 

Why joining us?

By joining Sojoourn Club, you’re joining our collective movement to experience the power of connection and the cultural diversity. Sojoourn Club is a safe space filled with ambitious, courageous and inspiring expats and French people who lived abroad. We are all curious to learn from each other and share happy moments together while finding new friends. At Sojoourn we are obsessed with helping expats with their integration. We will back you, introduce you, advise you and inspire you. Join a fast growing & supportive local community - that feels global, and get access to all the membership benefits.

We can’t wait to welcome you.

A safe space only for us - Mighty Networks

You deserve more than just a Facebook group. 

We want to give you the best environment to build strong and lasting relationships, but we feel like Facebook is not the right place. Because of the algorithm the posts don't reach everybody, so we all miss out on information. Sojoourners can't get easily in touch with each other unless they are "friends" on Facebook. There are a lot of distractions on the Facebook Feed and annoying advertising.

We found the solution and we love it!


Mighty Networks:

  • we have our own platform

  • it comes with a free application

  • without advertising

  • user friendly

  • easy to connect with people you don't know

  • offers different groups and topics

  • direct access to resources

  • integrated Zoom events

Have a sneak peak of our new platform, we know you will love it too!

Are you still not sure?

"I don't have a lot of time now and I don't know if I will be able to participate in the events."

We know that it's not always easy to find time with work, family.... Becoming a member at Sojoourn Club gives you more than only participating in our events. You will receive exclusive help with French administration, access to several resources online, and connect easier to English-speaking experts who trusted. And you never know, maybe your future best friend is waiting for you to connect.

"I'm not yet in Lyon."

It's even better to start making connections before arriving to have a smoother installation and feel home in Lyon quicker. People you connect with can give you advise, share their relocating experience and support you in your transition time.

"I don't know if I'm going to stay in Lyon."

Don't worry, you can unsubscribe at any moment and your membership won't be renewed automatically at the end of your billing period.

"I am not so good with computers."

If you have ever used Facebook, it will be very easy to understand the platform because they are very similar. Plus we are here to help you whenever you feel lost and not sure where to find things. When you become a member you can book an introduction Zoom call with us, where we can get to know each other better and we can show you how the platform works if you need it.

"It is not easy for me to start a conversation with people I don't know, especially online."

It is a skill that you can learn by practising it. At the beginning it was also not easy for us, but you would be surprised how welcoming, warm and funny our community is. And don't forget everybody feels awkward at the beginning, it is normal. We are always there to keep the conversation flowing and make sure everybody is having a good time.

We all need human connections, especially right now. We would be happy to welcome you in the Sojoourn Club!
