International Friendship Program volunteer applications to ensure that the friendship assignments are well-matched.
Once friendship assignments have been made, participant volunteers will receive the name and contact information
of their international student by mail. The participant volunteer may then call, email or write to the international
student to begin their friendship.
Thank you for your application and your willingness to serve as a participant volunteer in the
