|Our mission||Our main objective is to foster better understanding between people through our public diplomacy [JB emphasis] programs, our language and culture projects, refugee resettlement, and foreign policy forums.|
|Ways to help||
You may host one of our International Visitor Groups for dinner, host an Algerian Youth Leadership student for two weeks, or become a volunteer at one of our Fulbright events. The home host experience will broaden your global perspective! This could consist of an individual staying at your home for a time period of 7, 15, or 30 days.
Volunteer drivers are sometimes needed to take the international visitors around Reno and Tahoe for the day. The individuals will need to be picked up from their hotel and escorted around the town. We will need a copy of a valid driver’s license.
Our Language Bank does cost money for our interpreters, but we need volunteers to interpret for those who cannot afford to pay.
|How you help||Volunteers assist with our programs and the many interesting and diverse activities we develop here at the NNIC. Our volunteers get to meet and engage with diverse people from around the world.|
