Thanksgiving, celebrated on the fourth Thursday every November, is a special American holiday. It is a time when Americans gather around a traditional turkey dinner to give thanks for blessings and renew bonds of family and friendship. We invite international students to share this day with an American family. You will be welcomed and experience a memorable time enjoying American hospitality and food on this happy occasion.
If you have a car, your host will give you directions on how to drive to their home. If you do not have a car, your host will arrange to pick you up or tell you how to get there by Uber or Lyft.
Please sign up to join an American family for a delicious Thanksgiving meal. This year, Thanksgiving 2019 will be on Thursday, November 28.
Registration for the Thanksgiving program opens on October 28 and closes on November 22. When you sign up for the Thanksgiving program, please be patient to hear back from us, as we match students with hosts, but you should hear back from us by Nov. 22. Reach out to us if you don't hear from us by then.
Participation is FREE.
