IVLP Home Hospitality offers you the opportunity to host small dinner events in your home for two to four visitors. Individuals and families are invited to volunteer as hosts and may be needed at any time throughout the year as delegations visit NC nearly every month.
Home Hospitality isn't complicated. There's no need to plan anything particularly fancy, as the goal is simply that you share your warmth, interest, and dinner hospitality with our international guests. These dinners are invariably lively, enjoyable exchanges, and we keep them small in size not just to limit the host's burden of preparation, but also to foster more extensive dialogue.
A home hospitality dinner may take many forms: a family-style dinner with immediate family and/or close friends, a potluck, or a picnic where you bring the dinner to share. What matters most is a spirit of warm, welcoming hospitality.
Note that hosts must pick up their dinner guests at their hotel before dinner, and drop them back at the hotel afterward. For more information, please contact IVLP Program Director, Leila Bekri at 919-782-0552 or [email protected]
