Call for volunteers for Community Friends Program

September 09, 2014

The Community Friends Program matches Lewis & Clark international students with people who live in Portland for occasional social interaction. This is NOT a home stay program.

Rather, we are looking for volunteers to spend a little time with individual students, who generally live on campus.  

Through this program, students have opportunities to practice their English, get off campus, and see what it’s really like to live in Portland. Volunteers can be families, couples, or individuals.  

If you would like to get to know someone from another country and have 1-2 hours to spend once or twice a month, please let me know.  

You can email me at or find out more here:  

At this time, there is a particular need for volunteers who would be interested in spending time with male students from Japan and Saudi Arabia.
