The Greenville team serves the international community in the Upstate of SC with a number of programs and services. From our newest neighbors, refugees and expats, to university and English language school students, our desire is to be a welcoming face and become trusted friends. Getting to know Americans in your community can be a big challenge when you are from another culture. Greenville staff are here to help!

We have volunteers who enjoy meeting others from around the world. We lead programs and activities for internationals and iFace volunteers to get to know each other. Come join us – we would love to meet you!

English Language Learners

Conversation Partners

We seek to match students with American volunteers from the Greenville area to get together at least once a week for conversational practice and friendship.  It is a great way to meet new friends and improve speaking skills.

Welcoming English Language Learners (WELL)

iFace provides English classes for refugees throughout the school year. WELL Conversation Groups are also scheduled throughout the year to help improve speaking and listening skills.

Friendship Partners for International University Students

We match international university students with American volunteers from the Greenville area for friendship and cultural exchange. Students and their Friendship Partners get together at least once a month. It is a great way to meet new friends, learn about the Greenville community and American culture, and improve speaking skills.

Community Building Activities

Whether you are living in Greenville for a short time or making it your permanent home, you are welcome to join our activities to help you connect with other internationals and Americans!

Book Club

We learn vocabulary and speaking skills as we read together. It is a fun way to improve English skills and make friends!

International Ladies Fellowship

We seek to build friendship while also improving English skills through stories and discussions that help us get to know one another and learn together.

Plus much more . . .

Community activities, Bible studies for those interested in learning about the Bible, service opportunities, Christian fellowship, etc.
