Conversation Partners & Friendship Families Needed for International Summer Program!
Are you staying in Emporia this summer? Looking for something exciting to do?
International Summer Program Operations are looking for anyone who is interested in being a conversational partner or a friendship family with international students this summer.
Emporia State University has hosted the International Summer Program since 2003. We welcome students from all over the world for an educational and recreational program aimed at preparing students for a successful college career and a unique cultural experience in the heart of America.
International students are often far from home and do not see their families for months or even years. Being without their families and friends and adapting to a new culture and a new school can be difficult in many ways. The warm support of community and members families can help ease their stress and fears.
We are expecting approximately 30 Japanese students coming to Emporia this summer.
We need the following volunteers:
If you prefer filling out the forms manually, we have paper forms in the office (Lower Level of Memorial Union) as well.
Please feel free to stop by and pick them up.
Please do not hesitate to contact Yukii (firstname.lastname@example.org) or the Office of International Education if you have any questions.
