Create Global Connections

Share your expertise. Open your home. Impart your local knowledge. Be part of the exchange experience by hosting a dinner, highlighting Minnesota’s work culture, or being a local guide.

In Your Home

Global Minnesota members have the unique opportunity to meet international participants through dinner hosting. Share your culture and story across the table over a meal. You don’t have to be a world traveler, multilingual, or geography expert to host.

Host a Dinner

In Your Workplace

Through meetings, site visits, workshops, and shadowing, professional exchange participants learn how social, political, and family issues are addressed through policy, advocacy, and grassroots action. You don’t need to work on international projects to be an excellent resource for our visitors.

Share Industry Knowledge

In the Community

Link international visitors to Minnesota’s culture by volunteering as a local guide. By accompanying exchange participants to professional meetings and cultural activities, our member volunteers provide a unique local perspective.
