Community Friends program fosters friendships, cultural connections with international students

For the hundreds of international students who arrive on Yale’s campus each August, Yale’s Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS) offers hospitality and guidance through its Community Friends of Yale International Students program.

Community Friends fosters intercultural exchange and understanding by matching local New Haven residents with incoming international students. Single people, couples, and families of all sizes can volunteer to be Community Friends hosts.
