International College Students
Volunteer Friendship Host
Friendship Volunteers, who can be a family, a couple or an individual, are matched with international students to whom they offer practical assistance and social interaction. They may help you shop for clothing, food and household items, open a bank account, practice English, and understand American culture. They will not impose their political or religious beliefs on you. Your hosts may invite you to their home for dinner and conversation, to share holidays and special events, or take you to places of interest, including museums and historical sites.
If you would like to be matched with a Friendship Volunteer, complete the Application for Volunteer Friendship Host. If you have already applied but have not heard from a host, contact the RIC office.
Please keep the RIC office informed of your current, local phone number and e-mail.
RIC activities and programs for international college students are endorsed by local colleges and universities
