Ready for an intercultural experience?
This ministry exists to love and care for the international students and newcomers to Edmonton. There are over 6,500 international students in University of Alberta alone, and while studying overseas is a fun and unique adventure, it can also be lonely for students who are still getting used to a new culture and are probably missing their friends and family.
We are looking for volunteer Canadian families who can host and build friendships with international students! The minimum requirement for volunteer couples is to meet with your student for a meal or a recreational activity at least four times a year (ideally around Christmas, Easter and two other Sundays. International students usually don’t have family to celebrate the holidays with).
If you’re an international student in Edmonton and would like to sign up and experience being a part of a Canadian family, we’d love to meet you!
