International House is delighted to be hosting a group of Turkish judges and lawyers through the Charlotte School of Law (Aug 17-22) and a group of disability rights and healthcare advocates from Georgia through the Open World Program (Sept 19-27).
As part of their experience in Charlotte, they are eager to spend time with American families, and we are seeking families and individuals to host these distinguished guests. It’s a wonderful way to experience new cultures and make friends from around the world!
In addition, we will soon host nine high school Youth Ambassadors from Peru, Ecuador, and Columbia who will visit Charlotte through the Youth Leadership Program between September 5th and 17th. Their program will focus on youth empowerment, environmental leadership and public speaking.
We will need families with teenagers to home host during this time. Hosting teens are welcome to participate in all meetings and workshops. Our experience with past Youth Ambassadors has been delightful – expect energy, smiles, and laughter, and lots of cultural exchange! This is a highly selective program and each of our visitors are highly accomplished teenagers.
Individuals and families serving as host families will assist with transportation on the weekdays with drop-offs at International House around 9:00 am and pick-ups around 5:00pm (carpools can be arranged) as will also provide breakfast and dinner. A Home Host Orientation will be arranged prior to your guest’s arrival.
For further questions or to volunteer as a home host, please contact Johnelle Causwell at firstname.lastname@example.org (704) 342-2248 ext. 121.
