Interested in hosting an international visitor? Thank you!
TGA typically welcomes more than 300 international visitors each year ... and for each visitor, we do our best to make them feel at home. And what better way to make friends and cultivate life-long friendships than to be a host!
Visitors typically include working professionals, government officials, artists, academics, entrepreneurs, journalists, and administrators. The programs in which they participate reflect their interests and include themes related to government, the media, environmental protection, women’s leadership, education, public health, the arts, agriculture, and economy and trade. As a host, you'll share the American way of life, while learning about other cultures from around the world.
