The International Family Network

The International Family Network provides support to W&M's international community. The group is also open to interested Williamsburg community members. Coming from all over the globe, members share activities that promote friendship and understanding, including language conversation classes, holiday celebrations, cooking, excursions, and much more!

All members are encouraged to participate and take an active role in organizing activities of interest to them. We encourage you to attend to make new friends, share experiences, and learn about other cultures. Whether you are here for a short time or are a permanent resident, join the fun!

Join the International family network!


The group meets on Fridays from 11:00am-1:00pm. Planned activities usually end by 12:00pm and members can stay back to have lunch and conversations together. Most activities are children friendly. For information on activities, programs, and groups to join, contact Mona Starman.
