The Friends Need Volunteers!

Friends of Davis International Center is seeking new volunteers to become tutors and hosts. Our volunteers represent varying ages and backgrounds, but they all share the same dedication—helping international graduate students, visiting scholars and their families meet the daily challenges of living and studying in a foreign country.

Since 1979, Friends volunteers have been:

  • Inviting international graduate students and scholars, along with their spouses and families, into our homes for dinners and gatherings.
  • Meeting on campus in small groups to practice English conversation and socialize.
  • Offering individual tutoring to international graduate students and scholars who want to improve their English skills.
  • Creating intercultural understanding by serving as the volunteer wing of Davis International Center of Princeton University.

Above all, we offer the greatest gift of all — friendship.

If sharing your knowledge, experience and friendship with grateful members of the international community interests you, then consider joining us in becoming a Friends volunteer.
