International Friendship Family Program

Wake Forest University and the Center for Global Programs and Studies is pleased to present The Friendship Family Program. This program is designed to connect our international students with local families in the Winston-Salem area.

The ultimate goal of the Friendship Family Program is to facilitate the development of lasting and rewarding relationships by matching freshman & sophomore students with families based on interests and hobbies. The families are meant to serve as a support system to students during their time spent in the United States.

As Winston-Salem becomes more globally connected, a program such as this is paramount to meeting the needs of both students and community alike. The relationship between the student and the family is meant to broaden both parties’ global horizons and intercultural knowledge.

Your interest in this program is greatly appreciated! Please follow the appropriate link below and complete the application to participate.
