International Coffee Hour

Interacting With Your International Friend Info

This weekly event takes place during the school year, from September – April.

IFI Grand Rapids in partnership with the InterVarsity Chapter at Grand Valley State University hosts an International Coffee Hour. Volunteers meet weekly on campus with international students for conversational English over tea, coffee, and snacks.

We do require that all US American volunteers fill out our volunteer application and complete a training before attending.

If you have any questions about the International Coffee Hour and how to get involved, please email Randy Karel.
