TechGirls enables 28 young women (ages 15-17) from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, and Tunisia to participate in a 3-week program in the U.S.  TechGirls aims to “educate for employment,” empowering youths with the skills and vision needed to create vibrant futures.

During these 3 weeks, the TechGirls have many opportunities to interact with Americans, both in their homes and in their workplaces:

If you live in the southwest Virginia (Roanoke, Salem, Bedford, Forest or Lynchburg) consider hosting a TechGirl Friday afternoon, July 27 through Sunday afternoon, July 29, 2018 (weekend only; two nights).

American families play a central role in the overall experience of international guests. Through time spent with US families, our visitors come to understand U.S. cultural values and our diverse way of life.  Over 300 Virginia families, companies, and organizations have participated in hosting Legacy International visitors since 1994.  If you would like to host  — Download Host Family Questionnaire 2018
