Pen Pal Program


The FIUTS Pen Pal program is a quarterly letter exchange between UW international students and local elementary school students. Pen Pals send and receive 4 letters to each other over a period of 6-8 weeks. At the end of the program the elementary school students get to meet their UW pen pals in-person on the University of Washington campus at FIUTS Wednesday Lunch.

If you are a teacher and interested in having your class participate in the program, email Kailyn Swarthout, FIUTS Education Programs Coordinator, at
