During the COVID-19 pandemic, our programs will be adjusted to comply with CDC and Georgia Department of Health guidelines. Read our End of Year letter to see how AMIS has Re-Imagined International Friendship throughout the pandemic.

We believe that one person can make a difference in the life of an international college/graduate student or scholar studying in the US. International Students are the best and brightest of their home countries and the future leaders of the world. Coming to the US can be a lonely and intimidating experience, and a time of cultural adjustment.


Offering friendship and hospitality to an international student will go a long way to help them to feel welcome in our city, give them confidence in their life here, and help them have a positive experience with Americans.  You may make a life-long international friend, and you will learn so much from them as they share their cultures and perspectives.

Hear what international students have to say about AMIS.

Extend friendship to an international student or two during the school year through the Amigo Friendship Program virtually or in person.

Join us for a concert and reception to welcome ALL international students and scholars in the Atlanta area.

"I love the opportunity to share cultures, perspectives, and experiences through AMIS. The scheduled events are great for mixing and meeting new people. It’s an easy way to meet new people outside your network and to show hospitality to wonderful people from around the world!" 

-Mitch Costley, Volunteer

"AMIS has been such a joy for our entire family. Spending time with our Amigo, international potluck dinners, and being at AMIS Day are all times we cherish. I am so happy to know we will raise our son with friends from all over the globe." 

-Jen Washburn, Amigo volunteer
