Community Connections Program
Interested in sharing your world with International Visitors?? Here is your chance!
In partnership with U.S Agency for International Development (USAID) the Iowa International Center will be participating in a dynamic program this October called Community Connections (CCP). The Community Connections Program provides 3-week, homestay-based practical training opportunities in the U.S. for participants from post-Soviet bloc states and Serbia. Visitors travel to the hosting city for hands-on professional enrichment, site visits, and cultural activities.
Kazakh construction educators coming in October!
Please consider supporting this program by hosting members of this group in your home for spans of 1 week up to the full 21 days of their visit. These individuals are primarily teachers of construction/vocational education in their home country and will be here learning how to better instruct on new construction practices and materials when they return to Kazakhstan. They will be visiting central Iowa from October 15 – November 4, 2014.
