International Friends of Pittsburg

Friendship Family Program

Host family

International Friends of Pittsburg (IFP) is a volunteer community organization founded to share home and community life with international visitors. Members of IFP are volunteers who give freely of their time. They want to get to know you and to help you enjoy your stay at Pittsburg State University. The International Friends families sponsor activities and have several services to help you. They entertain students in the homes, and include them in family activities such as: sporting events, dinners, concerts, shopping, sightseeing, family gatherings, holidays, community events and other activities in which they are interested.

This is not a live in host family program. This is a friendship family program.
