Amigo Friendship Partners
During your time in Atlanta, wouldn’t it be nice to have a local American friend who could welcome you and help you navigate life in America? Sign up for the Amigo Friendship Program and you will be matched with an Atlanta family or individual for friendship and sharing of cultures. (Amigo is the Spanish word for "friend.")
After you sign up, you will receive an email from the AMIS Atlanta office to confirm your participation in the program. Once introduced to your new friend by email, your Amigo friend will reach out to you to arrange your first meeting. Although there are no time requirements for the program, we do ask that you make every effort to meet at least once in-person. Then, you can continue your friendship as you have time and opportunity.
Be sure to join our mailing list to find out what else AMIS Atlanta is doing.
We had a talk about how to succeed in an interview. I practiced based on my Amigo's suggestions and eventually got my first internship!"

What I gained from the Amigo Program has been far beyond my initial expectation, because I not only got to know Atlanta better as an international student, but also made a sincere friend that I truly can share my thoughts in life. This is an irreplaceable experience.
