AMIS (pronounced ah-mee') is a French word that means “friends” and symbolizes our mission as an organization of friendship and hospitality. We serve international students in the metro Atlanta area. We want to make your stay in the United States a “once-in-a-lifetime” experience. With the support of churches, civic and service organizations, and corporations, we connect students with “host” families and individuals in a number of different ways, providing students with opportunities for meaningful and personal relationships with Atlanta families and individuals.

Since 1978, we have built friendship and hospitality bridges with more than 50,000 students. Many of these relationships still exist today.
