Emergency Help

IFU can timely provide assistance to address the emergencies and connect parents and the students through our staff and corresponding campus volunteers when emergencies happen. Emergencies that could happen to international families include loss of connection, missing students, students’ psychological issues that lead to potential suicide, legal issues, and academic problems.

Information Conveyance

IFU reduces the information gap between international students and their parents through both online and offline platforms. We share official news and announcements from universities, authentic overseas experience through our campus volunteers’ first-person perspectives, etc. We provide parents the channel to learn about their children, the student’s real life status overseas and we help students understand their parents' worries and love as well. We are the informational bridge between international families.

Volunteer Activities

IFU volunteers cooperate with universities, local international students, and non-profit organizations for various volunteer activities. We’ve held various activities, including but not limited to contributing to wild animal conservation, helping disabled community’s study, international student parties, and seashore campfire parties. With those activities, we hope to help international students overcome language and cultural differences challenges and obtain a sense of belongingness overseas.

Event Recap & Monthly Report

In September, IFU campus volunteers started a new semester from summer vacation. This year, we cannot gather together in person, as usual, to chat about IFU and the experience abroad. But our team is still communicating with the communities on social media and helping international families deal with emergencies, like missing contact and mental health issues. Besides, we’re working on updating local Covid-19 situations, translating new policies and timelines from schools, and planning the school organizations’ future work. Monthly meetings are also coming up as the semester starts.
