The Center for Global Programs and Studies is pleased to present the Friendship Family Program, which is designed to connect our international students with families in the Winston-Salem area.
The primary goal of the Friendship Family Program is to help facilitate the development of lasting and rewarding relationships by matching international freshman and sophomore students with local Winston-Salem families based on mutual interests and hobbies. It is our expectation that families selected will serve as a support system for students during their time in the United States. As Winston-Salem becomes more globally connected, a program such as this is paramount to meeting the needs of the community and our students. At its core, the mission of this program is to broaden both parties’ global horizons and to enhance their intercultural knowledge.
