Support International Students at Skidmore & UAlbany

Skidmore College and the University at Albany (SUNY) are both seeking help and support for their international students. These are two great opportunities to return the hospitality we received as PCVs and to introduce students to your corner of America and NYS.

Skidmore’s Office of Student Academic Services is looking for applicants for its International Friendship Family Program (IFFP). This program connects international students with families in the Saratoga area and is non-residential. Families and students plan activities together and help the students learn about and integrate into the community and American culture. There is an application online here: For more information, contact Darren Drabek at 518.580.8155 or

The University at Albany’s International Student & Scholar Services office is looking for short-term host families for the month of August. See the flyer/image below for more information.
