Help an International student or their spouse without leaving your home. We are seeking volunteers in Central Ohio to serve. Since COVID-19 many students are isolated or have returned to their countries. They need a friend and someone to help them practice spoken English. A Virtual Conversational English Partner (VCEP) must be willing to meet online using an app such as Face Time, Facebook Messenger, Google Hangouts or Zoom for at least once a week for 30 minutes. The meeting time is flexible and arranged based on your schedule and the schedule of the international student. There is a cross-cultural training and list of conversation starters provided at no cost. Minimum 6 weeks commitment. For more info visit: ifipartners.org/ecp .

Mission Statement

To extend life-changing hospitality and friendship to international students out of reverence for Jesus


Over 7,000 internationals are studying in Columbus. International Friendships, Inc. is a faith-based organization that offers the students a variety of services and events to welcome and befriend them. Our volunteers embrace our vision, mission, and values.

We provide many services to all college students on a visa regardless of their religious or cultural background. We seek to meet the practical (airport pickup, temporary housing, and help with English Conversation), social (potlucks, picnics, holiday meals, trips, special events), and the spiritual (Bible studies, retreats, and one on one mentoring) needs of students.



We'll work with your schedule.
