This summer, Appalachian State’s Office of International Education and Development in partnership with Academic Civic Engagement will host a group of 25 young adult African leaders (from several African countries) for a 6-week training focused on civic leadership, as part of the Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders program. We are looking for families to host one or two of these visitors in their home during one or both of the following weekends:
Friday, July 8 – Sunday, July 10
Friday, July 15 – Sunday, July 17
The purpose of these homestays is to introduce our African visitors to home and family life in the US, as well as promote cross-cultural learning with their host families. We hope you will enjoy incorporating your Mandela Washington visitor into your weekend routine and family activities.
