Host Overnight at your Home

Build lifelong connections by opening your doors to an international visitor for a U.S. home experience. Throughout the year (and especially during the summer and fall), the International Visitor Program offers the opportunity to host a youth or adult visitor from across the world—from three nights to five weeks. Overnight hosts provide a private bedroom, breakfast, most dinners, and an up-close view of daily life in an Oregon home.

Upcoming overnight hosting opportunities:

  • July 11 - 25, 2019: Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (English-speaking; 1 adult, 12 youth)

  • July 31 - August 13, 2019: Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program (French-speaking; 7 adults, 14 youth)
    This group comes from the following countries: Central African Republic, Chad, Democratic Republic of Congo Guinea, Mali, Niger, and Senegal

  • October 17 -28: Youth Ambassadors from Bolivia and Peru (English- speaking; wait-list only)
