Mission: To get international students and IFI volunteers together in a fun and nurturing setting.

 2 Goals:
1. Help students make friends with other students and American families.
2. Encourage awareness and involvement in IFI (for students and new volunteers)


  • The Welcome Picnic is one of the first opportunities for new international students to interact with each other as well as their hosts. Since space under the shelters is limited, we ask that only those volunteers who are serving and/or bringing their students (new students only please) attend.
  • Because 250-400 new international students attend, we need volunteers to bring food.
