International Friendship Families

International Friendship Families photo booth group portraitIFF, formerly known as CISH, is a community group that provides a “home away from home” for international students and scholars who come to study at Lehigh University from around the globe.

IFF volunteers come from the Lehigh community and across the Lehigh Valley to provide support and a sense of good will to our international population. Whether you just want to participate once or would like to be more involved, you can choose the level that works for you.

Our volunteers help in many ways:

  • Hosting home-cooked meals
  • Inviting guests to community events
  • Providing temporary housing before or during breaks
  • Providing local transportation
  • Storing personal belongings over summer

However you choose to be involved, IFF is a great way learn about different cultures while giving back to your community!
