Home and Dinner Hosting

Open your home to an international visitor

Be a Host for International Guests!

A key part of citizen diplomacy is introducing the international visitors to American home-life and Charlotteans from all walks of life. International House offers home-hosting and dinner-hosting opportunities for people who live in the Charlotte area and are interested in getting to know the visitors on a personal level. Home hosts do just that - host the visitor at their residence for part of or the entire duration of their visit in Charlotte. Dinner hosts prepare a meal for a larger group of people in order to enjoy an evening of conversation with the visitors.


If interested, please contact Johnelle Causwell at jcauswell@ihclt.org or call 704-342-2248.
