Being a sponsor is not designed to be an interruption but rather an integration into your normal schedule. As a sponsor, you are not required to set up special functions for your international guest, but to include the officer in the things you and your family does normally. It is not a financial commitment. Community sponsors act as fireside diplomats, and have the opportunity to participate in a vital American foreign policy initiative.
Volunteers are matched with an officer, and act as a cultural guide and friend to the officer- putting American society and culture on display through their interactions.
If you would like to learn more about the opportunity or for an application, please contact Casey Vaughn at [email protected] or call (202) 685-4240.
