Neighbors International Needs Friendship Families

You should consider being a Friendship Family under Neighbors International, if you have:

  • A love for those from a different culture. We need many more families and individuals over 30 years old to answer the call to become a Friendship Family for the incoming international college students flooding our city right now! (Single people over the age of 30 are welcome to participate and will be paired with a student of the same gender.)
  • The time to call your student at least once a week and get together with him/her at least once a month.
  • A heart for sharing your home and being hospitable. Imagine you are an international student who has arrived here in Grand Rapids, Michigan without knowing anyone at all – you, as a Friendship Family can make a difference in his/her life and in turn, you will learn from your student about their life, culture, and make a new friend.
  • Time to attend a mandatory new volunteer training, Sunday, September 22, 7:00pm. You must sign up by September 15 to attend.
