Welcome

Welcome to PRISM's website!  We are so glad you came to look at our program.  Your time in Pittsburgh will be a great adventure!  We hope many of our activities will help you gain a deeper experience with American people and culture.  Our staff is here to help you with any aspect of living in Pittsburgh so please don't hesitate to contact us.   

There are many dimensions to our program.  One of our favorite things to do is to help you meet local people.  You can do that through our weekly Open House Dinner (Sundays at 6:00 pm) or by attending one of our weekend hosting trips.  We travel to popular sites like Niagara Falls and Washington D.C., but also go to small towns and rural areas in the region.  All of our trips involve staying with an American host family so you will gain a better understanding of local culture.  We also want to give you the opportunity for adventure and so we offer day trips that involve enjoying the beautiful nature and scenery of western Pennslyvania.  If you are interested in improving your English we have an English Conversation Group for you to come practice speaking with native English speakers.  We also find that many students are interested to grow in their knowledge of the Christian faith and so we offer a variety of Bible Discovery Groups for you to learn more about what the Bible has to say about our everyday lives.  

Whatever your interest, we have a program for you.  We look forward to meeting you.  You are always welcome to stop by our office to meet our staff and to discuss our program in more detail.  You can find us at:  Bellefield Presbyterian Church, 4001 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA  15213

We are so glad you are here and look forward to meeting you!
