Let us know how many will be attending

THANK YOU!

In addition to joining us for dinner,

can you help with set-up/clean-up, drive

students to the dinner, bring a side-dish?

Volunteer with ISM!

ISM would not exist without dedicated volunteers that wish to show Christian hospitality to international students.  Eighty-seven percent of all international students who study in the United States never enter an American home while they live in our country.  What a missed opportunity!

Here are some ways to volunteer with ISM:

  • Be a friendship family

  • Help with our events by driving, cooking, or participating in the activity

  • Lead a Bible Study or English Conversation Group

  • Volunteer at our annual Furniture Giveaway

 

Every one of these opportunities gives you the chance to share yourself, share your culture, and share your faith with lovely international students who are curious about all things American. Contact us on this site or call 314-452-6406 if you want to learn more.  

Would you like to be a friend to an international student -- virtually or in person? Please email Sharon at ismstlouis@gmail.com for more information or to be matched with an international student!

Welcome to St. Louis! We're so glad you're here! International students like you contribute greatly to the richness and vitality of our city.

Would you like to have an American "Friendship Family" while you're here? Friendship Families are a wonderful way to:

  • meet an American family that really wants to know you! They'll be interested in learning about you, your family, and your country.

  • see how Americans live and see the inside of an American home (you can meet virtually during COVID-19).

  • ask questions about living here -- about shopping, driving, and places to visit. They will know!

Having a Friendship Family is great fun!  In many cases, students and their American families become lifelong friends.

If you'd like to have a Friendship Family, please contact Sharon at ismstlouis@gmail.com or 314-452-6406.

American Friendship Families!
