More about Home Hospitality
For many of our international visitor groups, the World Affairs Council of New Hampshire provides them with the opportunity to visit a local home for an informal dinner. These dinners are great chances for people from around the world to learn more about the United States and for their hosts to learn about other countries. These dinners can be as informal as you like, as people always remember the discussions the best. Groups range in size from 2 people to 24 and they come with interpreters, if need be. It is a wonderful way to engage with our visitors and to make international friends. Many of our hosts have visited the people they have met when they travel internationally.
More about the International Visitor Program
The International Visitor Leadership Program is the premier international exchange program run by the US Department of State. By bringing over 5,000 international visitors to the country and having them travel to different cities, over a three week period, this program gives visitors the opportunity to learn what the US is really like. Through professional meetings, the groups learn about best practices in the US, which they can take back and adopt the parts that work well in their country. WACNH hosts around 275 visitors per year, showing them around the state. Over the years, the Council has hosted over 2,500 visitors from more than 175 different countries.
