Amigo Friendship Partners

During your time in Atlanta, wouldn’t it be nice to have a local American friend who could welcome you and help you navigate life in America? Sign up for the Amigo Friendship Program and you will be matched with an Atlanta family or individual for friendship and sharing of cultures.

After you sign up, you will receive an email from the AMIS office to confirm your participation in the program.  Once connected, your Amigo friend will email you to introduce themselves and your friendship can begin. Although there are no time requirements for the program, we do ask that you make every effort to connect virtually or in person at least once.

Be sure to join our mailing list to find out what else AMIS is doing. 


We had a talk about how to succeed in an interview. I practiced based on my Amigo's suggestions and eventually got my first internship!"

What I gained from the Amigo Program has been far beyond my initial expectation, because I not only got to know Atlanta better as an international student, but also made a sincere friend that I truly can share my thoughts in life. This is an irreplaceable experience.
