International Friends, Inc. is a volunteer organization composed of Tucson community members interested in meeting, assisting, and entertaining international students. The program provides opportunities for international students and community members to make acquaintances and learn about each other's culture. Activities and programs coordinated by International Friends, Inc. provide students with a personal connection to the Tucson community. The International Friends, Inc. program is not a "live-in" hosting program. Many community members often invite their assigned international students to visit them for special holidays or traditional American celebrations.
