Volunteer Opportunity: Des Moines in April

March 4, 2011

Seeking: Volunteers in the Des Moines area to spend time with a participant from Egypt on weekends in April.


This is NOT a hosting opportunity, as the participant will be residing at a hotel in Downtown Des Moines during his stay in Iowa.

In April, IRIS will host a participant from Egypt for a four-week internship program through the U.S. Agency on International Development (USAID).

In order to give our international guest a full experience of Iowa, we are seeking individuals to spend time with the participant on weekends. Activities could include sharing meals, visiting Central Iowa sights and anything else that would give someone a taste of Iowa culture!

This is a fantastic opportunity not only to share our culture, but also to learn about another. Because of the timeliness of the project, with Egypt’s recent revolution and current state of political unrest, we are very excited to offer this opportunity to you.

For more information or to express interest in volunteering, please contact IRIS at 515.292.7103.
