San Diego is host to one of the largest populations of international students in the world, so it’s no surprise that we often need to call on a few extra people to serve and love them well.
By signing up to volunteer, you are expressing interest in helping international students feel more welcome in San Diego. From airport pickups and carpooling students to events to helping plan events and even discipling some students. Our volunteers are a vital part of what God is doing in San Diego. Join the team!

Every other Thursday at UCSD we have Bridges Dinner. This event is a great place for international students to find and grow in community together. This involves a hangout time, a home-cooked meal, a Bible study time, and dessert. For dessert, the cooks will either provide that for the students or invite everyone to walk to get dessert at a local shop together.
For each event, we need a small group to bring a meal to share with these amazing students.
Here are some important details to know for Bridges Dinner:

Friends for Dinner is a hospitality initiative taken by churches and Christian ministries that brings International Students into the homes of local Christian hosts for a tasty meal during a traditional holiday. During these meals, friendships are created and opportunities to share the love of Christ are born.
Hosting an international student through Friends for Dinner is a great way to apply what you have learned on EveryInternational. Especially if you have not yet taken the first step to build a relationship with an international. For this specific event, you can invite 1 or more international students into your home for your Thanksgiving meal that you are already having, so they can experience a warm, home-cooked meal in a family environment while they are away from home.
