The Vermont Council on World Affairs is consistently looking for members of the community interested in connecting with our work and visitors. With opportunities ranging from hosting groups of visitors for dinner to longer term overnight stays, there are plenty of ways to connect!
Home Hospitality: Interested in hosting a dinner for a small group of visitors in your home? Home hospitalities are a great way to interact with visitors and connect over a home cooked meal! We provide transportation, bios, and inform you of any dietary restrictions.
Open World: Interested in introducing an international visitor to life in Vermont? Consider hosting a delegate from the Open World Program! Delegates visit Vermont for one week and stay with local host families. The Vermont Council on World Affairs arranges professional programming during weekdays, while you share your home with the visitors in the evening and on the weekend.
PAYLP/IYLEP: Would you like to make a difference in the lives of a high school student from another country? Consider hosting a participant in one of our high school leadership programs! These two week programs serve to introduce participants to civic engagement and volunteerism and help develop their leadership skills. The Vermont Council on World Affairs arranges professional programming during weekdays, while you share your home with the visitors in the evening and on the weekend.
