- Did you realize 75% of all international student visitors never visit a US home?
- International students typically do not celebrate Thanksgiving in their own countries. Thanksgiving day offers a great time to meet and exchange cross-culturally!
- Know that international students welcome the invitation and are eager to join an American Thanksgiving Day experience
Sign up below to invite and host international students into your home on Thanksgiving Day, November 28. Then, we will assign students to your home, forward to you their specific contact information, and YOU will invite them to your holiday gathering. If this is your first time hosting students into your home be sure to check our our hospitality tips.
International student ministry staff from Duke, NC State, and UNC are partnering together to bring you this wonderful initiative. Please choose which university campus you are interested in volunteering for; and a ministry staff member from that university will follow up with you to match you with students.
*Note that many students will appreciate transportation assistance to and from your home*
