American Connection

An American Connection will enrich your life while you are here in Door County this summer. We invite you to experience American culture through friendship with a caring family or individual.

Some typical contacts may include sharing meals together, exploring the beauty of Door County, some enjoyable time for you away from work, and perhaps a shopping or cultural experience.

We hope that you will decide to participate in the American Connection program by completing the Student Registration.  At the bottom of that page there’s a checkbox for an American Connection – check the box.  That will start the process for getting you connected with an American friend.

If you completed the Student Registration earlier but did not request an American Connection, it’s not too late. Go directly to the Sign Up: American Connection page to sign up for an American Connection.

The American Connection is only available for students who live and work in Door County, Wisconsin.

For more information about the American Connection program please contact Sandy McClugagge at 920-246-1588.

Are you a Door County adult that has a heart for reaching out to international students?  We are a faith-based organization that seeks to help students experience American culture as part of their work-travel visa program.  For more information and an application to participate with us see our American Connection Friends page.
