Invite an International Student to Thanksgiving Dinner

Did you know that 75 percent of all international student visitors will never visit a U.S. home?

International students typically do not celebrate Thanksgiving in their own countries. The Thanksgiving day offers a great time to meet and exchange cross-culturally! 

We have seen that international students welcome the invitation and are eager to join a Thanksgiving meal experience

Sign up to invite and host international students in your home on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 28. Then, we will assign students to your home, forward to you their specific contact information, and you will invite them to your holiday gathering. If this is your first time hosting students into your home, be sure to check out our hospitality tips.

International student ministry staff from Duke, NC State, and UNC are partnering together to bring you this wonderful initiative. Please choose which university campus you are interested in volunteering for, and a ministry staff member from that university will follow up with you to match you with students.

*Note: Most students will require your transportation assistance to and from your home.*
