Be a Global Friend, Make a Global Friend

We welcome opportunities for our international students to meet people in the community. There are many ways to expand opportunities for people to learn more about their world.

Did you know that SFCC and SCC have international students from more than 25 countries?

CCS Global Friendship Families are people just like you who want to be a supportive friend to SFCC/SCC international students. We encourage our Global Friendship Families to reach out to their international student(s) at least once a month to invite them over for a meal or to join in an outing or community activity, or celebrate a birthday or holiday.

You can be as creative as you wish. If you’re interested, let us know and we’ll send you a simple Global Friendship Family Application and additional program information.

Please e-mail to request your application and program information as soon as possible. 

Donate to an International Student Scholarship

The Jackie Hanke International Scholarship Fund helps current academically successful international F-1 non-immigrant students who are experiencing financial hardship due to unexpected emergencies in their home nation and/or family. The objective of the funding is to ensure they are able to continue and complete their program of studies at SFCC or SCC.
