Helping International Students to experience our culture
The Community Connections Program is a cross cultural friendship program through which volunteers link with international students from all levels of study.
The program offers students the opportunity to meet new people and broaden their understanding of cultures across the world. If you are an international student, the program will help you to experience Australian culture and customs, while you share information about your home country with others. If you are a local student, it will provide opportunities to meet people from all over the world and gain a greater understanding of the different cultures that exist globally.
Some volunteers and students like to share common interests, such as going to the movies, having coffee or playing sports together. Other volunteers like to include their students in family gatherings, such as birthday parties and other social events.
If you’re interested in joining the program as an international student or volunteer, email firstname.lastname@example.org. You will be contacted for an informal interview. Visit the International Students page for more details and similar programs.
