IFI Buddy Partner Program

International students and American volunteers as buddy partners

You can help your international buddy to have a deeper cultural experience while in the United States and build a friendship. Meet together at least once or twice a month. Help answer questions about Columbus and cultural differences, share life together, enjoy meals, go shopping, celebrate holidays, participate in community events, and just relax in conversation. This could be the beginning of a meaningful friendship.
