Local families can make new friends from around the world by joining the Friendship Families of Laramie program offered in conjunction with the University of Wyoming’s International Students and Scholars office.
“Many of these students would love to participate in the Friendship Families of Laramie program” -- a volunteer non-live-in host family program that matches local Laramie families with international students for the purpose of friendship and understanding, says Leann Naughton, program coordinator.
“It is a very flexible program, and we only ask for a minimum of once-per-month contact that could be as simple as a phone call or an email,” Naughton adds. “Most students and families really hit it off and maintain a lifelong friendship.”
The local non-live-in host program has placed hundreds of international students with families in Laramie since 1997.
To host an international student, call Naughton by Tuesday, Aug. 30, at (307) 745-0747 or email email@example.com for an application form.
