Host a Visiting Young Leader this Summer!

Invite the world into your home this summer!

Hosting an international visitor is a truly unforgettable experience for all involved. It is a great way to help visitors connect with U.S. life and culture, and a great way for Oregonians to learn about the world. WorldOregon is excited to host two youth leadership exchanges this summer: 

Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP): July 24-August 7
Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Program (PAYLP): August 8-21

These young leaders need hosts during their time in Portland. Host families provide a supportive and welcoming environment, an individual bed, breakfasts and dinners, and may assist with transportation to and from WorldOregon's downtown office. Weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., the visitors will participate in workshops and program activities coordinated by WorldOregon.
