Academic English Studies

Community Friends Program Form

The Community Friends Program matches AES students and first year international students with local resident volunteers for fun activities and friendship. Volunteers are generally asked to serve as Community Friends for up to one academic calendar year. Students have the chance to practice their English and learn more about life in Oregon.

COVID-19 UPDATE: During Fall 2020 semester, students will be initially introduced to their Community Friends online, not in-person.
