There are many ways you can get involved by volunteering and/or contributing to Kirkwood International Programs.
Be A Mentor Family!
Kirkwood welcomes hundreds of international students to our community each year. The people they meet and live with here will shape their futures and the futures of their home communities. Mentor families experience new learning about the world, caring and nurturing relationships, a deepening sense of culture and the joy of forming global friendships. Mentor families also provide students with the knowledge of a typical life in the United States. Thank you for your interest in changing the lives of international students and making a difference in your community! If you're interested or have questions, email Jane Ann Rix or call her at 319-398-7663.
