Legacy is pleased to host teens and young professionals from the Middle East as part of our TechGirls & Saudi Young Leaders Exchange programs, both sponsored by the US Department of State. These delegation will spend between 3-4 weeks in the U.S., meeting with their peers and enhancing professional skills to address needs in their home communities.
Host families are needed for a weekend 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 commuities with their international guests, while learning about life in the Middle East! The host family experience is repeatedly sited as the most meaningful apsect of the exchange visitor's stay in the US!
2017 opportunities for families in the Blacksburg and Roanoke areas only:
- July 14-16, 2017 for our Saudi university students
- July 28-30, 2017 for our TechGirls teens.
