Global Friends - Volunteers

Wouldn’t you love to have an international friend? Someone to call for a cup of coffee, a stroll by the lake, a visit to a Madison landmark or simply to chat about one another’s country? Our Global Friends program offers that very opportunity! It pairs a local resident with an international student or scholar. The interaction is informal and guided by the participants. For some volunteers and students, lifelong friendships have started this way! Let our Global Friends Coordinator find you a match.



Global Friends remains an active program!  Friends can meet remotely or with safe physical distancing. We currently have students waiting to be partnered with you.  Please register to get a Global Friend.
