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.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, virtual connections are strongly encouraged. If both parties are healthy and agree to meet in-person, outdoor socially-distanced gatherings may occur following CDC guidelines.
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.
"It feels great to be part of a family, away from your own family."

"Me and my amigo have many similarities. She is my age for the start. Sometimes I feel she is my other half, same thoughts, same living style and even same food preferences. She is the best girlfriend I could ask for here in USA.
Thank you so much AMIS for giving me the opportunity to be friends with someone like Kelly."
