Upcoming Dinner and Home Hosting Opportunities

NNIC will be hosting two Japanese visitors from April 14-16th. They are coming to Reno to learn about economic revitalization and would like to be hosted for dinner on April 15th!

We’ll will be hosting four legislative fellows from Pakistan from May 5-June 1.  The fellows will be interning with various local non-profit organizations and we are looking for home hosts for them.  Fellows need a bedroom, bathroom, breakfasts and some dinners.

NNIC will be hosting a professional fellow from Armenia from June 18-July 10.  The fellow will complete an internship on Nevada’s mining resources with university officials and the Great Basin Resource Watch.  We are looking for someone who can host him and preferably lives in proximity of the university.

NNIC will also be hosting a group of 18 Algerian youth leaders from August 6-28 and we are seeking home hosts for them for the first ten days for the program.

NNIC will host a group of 10 Iraqi youth leaders from August 18-September 1 and we are seeking home hosts for their visit.

We will also host 25 young African leaders and would like to recruit five or six home hosts who are interested in hosting the same group of four leaders each Friday during their stay on June 26, July 3, July 10, July 17 and July 24.

Finally, we’ll host the annual “drive-by” dinner with 75 Fulbrighters on Wednesday, August 19.   Think of this as a blind date with four or five of the smartest people from various parts of the world.  You drive through the Siena valet and we put the Fulbrighters in your care for the evening.  It’s a blast each year!
