Legacy is pleased to young professionals from the Middle East as part of our Professional Fellows Program, sponsored by the US Department of State. This delegation will spend 6 weeks in the U.S. (primarily in the DC area), meeting with their peers and enhancing professional skills to address needs in their home communities.

Host families are needed for one week in the Blacksburg / Christiansburg area to showcase US hospitality and culture! Host families provide more than just a bed and a few meals. They serve as "cultural ambassadors", sharing favorite aspects of their home communities with their international guests, while learning about life in the Middle East! The host family experience is repeatedly sited as the most meaningful aspect of the exchange visitor's stay in the US! (During weekdays our PFP Fellows will be engaged in Legacy organized trainings and meeting at VT, so families are primarily hosting on weekends and evenings.)

2018 opportunities for families in the Blacksburg and Christiansburg area only:

  • April 22-28, 2018
  • Oct 7-13, 2018
