FRIDAY MORNING COFFEE
This lively informal gathering creates a sense of community among international families and local volunteers. The Friday Coffee is held from 10:00am to 12:00 noon every week that Stanford is in session. The program attracts from 45 to 65 international spouses each week, and an additional 10 to 25 children.

The program provides an opportunity for spouses to make new friends and to learn about how they can pursue their interests or education in the Stanford area. A children's singing time is often held at 11 a.m. in the Back Lounge.

For Internationals

This informal gathering is an ideal way to meet other spouses and learn about the many options for enriching your stay in the Stanford area. Newly arrived spouses and partners receive information about classes and opportunities to make their time her enjoyable and meaningful.

Conversation tables offer an informal way to meet others, practice English and share experiences.

CCIS Volunteers play a number of roles, from greeting and providing local information to newly arrived families to leading "Conversation Tables" to engaging attendees in English practice and helping them get acquainted with one another.
