American Families Needed for International Friends Program

International Friends is a semester-long program with an aim to strengthen the bonds between international students and the Kirksville community.

This program provides international students with the opportunity to experience a taste of real American life and culture by spending time with American families. In return, the international students are also able to share their culture with Americans. Everyday things can be a new experience for an international student. Being an International Friend is a rewarding opportunity for both the student and the family. It is a wonderful way for each to gain a better understanding of another culture and build lasting ties between Americans and people from all parts of the world.
