Friendship Family Program

Welcome to the NWC International Friendship Family Program! 

The Friendship Family program is a cross-cultural exchange program that has been in existence for many years at NWC. Friendship families are often NWC faculty and staff or people from the Powell and Cody communities that wish to befriend a new international student. They get together several times during the year, perhaps for holidays or family events, a trip to Yellowstone or Billings, or just to hang out in an American home environment. In that way, both students and families are able to exchange ideas, cultures, and friendship..

In the beginning of the school year we ask the students and families to fill out interest forms. Those forms will help us to decide the pairing. Students are paired with Friendship families in late summer. Soon after that, there will be a potluck where students can meet with their host families.

If you are interested in becoming a Friendship Family, please complete this information form.
