We are now accepting applications for the Holiday Hospitality Program, a volunteer-based community involvement program designed to enable international students and scholars to join Staten Island families for a meal during the holiday season. Participants (on both sides) sign up for each holiday individually.  There is no long-term commitment, but participants can sign up as often as they like. 

I invite members of the CSI community to consider hosting an international student or scholar for this Thanksgiving. If you are interested in opening your home to at least two international students and/or scholars for Thanksgiving, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator and CSI alumna, Debra Santuilli-Barone at literallydeb@aol.com or at 646.765.6531.

For more information about the program, please contact Winnie Brophy at the Center for International Service in Building 2A, Room 206; 718.982.2100; winnie.brophy@csi.cuny.edu or email Debra Santuilli-Barone.
