Make New Friends through the International Friendship Family Program

The Office of International Engagement is seeking members of the Wilkes community to become a part of the International Friendship Family Program for 16 students from Panama.

You can spend just a few hours a week with your student sharing meals, going to the movies, exploring northeastern Pennsylvania or taking part in Saturday outings on or off campus with International Engagement.

The students are hoping to create lasting bonds of friendship with members of our city and University during their stay. The International Family Friendship Program is a great way for students to build a support system in the local community, as well as a great way for local families to expand their cultural horizons.
