App Buddies

Virtual Host Families

How helpful would it be to have a friend in Athens, who is a native English speaker, and knows the best places in town to eat and shop, as well as having someone to advise you when you get ready to buy a car, need other service recommendations, or have a question you would normally ask friends and family back home? REACH’s App Buddies Program can connect you with a local family or individual in the Athens area who would be delighted to meet with you online or through email, to interact with you as your schedules permit, and to serve as a resource for you before you move to Athens and as you adjust to life in the Classic City.
