Iowa International Center

Have an extra bedroom? Homestay hosting is an excellent opportunity to spend time with international visitors in your own home as you provide lodging during their Des Moines program. We have homestay hosting opportunities for as little as three days or as long as three weeks! Iowa International Center provides homestay hosting for approximately three programs per year, but we accept applications all year round. This is one of our most popular opportunities!

Mission Statement

We build cultural respect at home and around the world one person at a time.

Description

Founded in 1938, the Iowa International Center began by welcoming and providing safety for refugees fleeing Germany and Poland. For over 75 years, we have provided personal and professional opportunities linking Iowans with peoples from around the world. The Iowa International Center also provides access to critical resources to Iowans, new Iowans (including refugees and immigrants), and international visitors in Iowa to help our state become a more inclusive and welcoming place to live, work and raise a family.

The Iowa International Center's key programs and activities include the following:

Multilingual Resources for New Iowans, Refugees and Immigrants - Welcometoiowa.org and a free 24/7 Statewide Emergency Interpretation Hotline.

Interpretation and Translation Services - professional interpretation and document translation.

The Sehgal Foundation International Visitors Center - we host more than 130 global leaders annually for professional exchanges and local hosting opportunities.
