VOLUNTEER HOSTS NEEDED FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

The U.S. Joint Forces Staff College is seeking members of the Hampton Roads community to serve as sponsors for their international students arriving June 15.

Each is an officer of a foreign military who speaks fluent English, resides on the JFSC campus and attends the college for a three-month course of study.

Sponsors are needed to help these students gain a broader view of American way of life. This does not require elaborate events, but can include trips to the zoo, local concerts, plays, sporting events, or even a simple meal in your home. A Sponsor Appreciation Luncheon will be held on July 1 so that sponsors may meet their student. If you are interested in learning more about sponsoring a student, please see the attached sheets files. You can also call or e-mail the International Military Student Office: Catherine Dakin, (757) 443-6620 or dakinc@jfsc.ndu.edu.
