Host an international visitor in your home or! Go global without leaving home.


WorldChicago is hosting a delegation of 23 journalists from the Middle East and North Africa in early November through the Edward R. Murrow Program for Journalists! We're looking for hosts to have them over for dinner in their homes on Thursday, November 6th.

The Murrow Program brings 125 young journalists from around the world working in newly emerging independent media outlets to the US. During their program, participants will explore the role of a free press in a democracy and learn from American journalists through seminars and a symposium in Washington, DC, and through meetings in Chicago and other cities.

Interested in hosting for dinner a few courageous young journalists working to promote freedom of the press in the Middle East?  The group can be divided into smaller groups of 3-6 journalists for dinners.
