Hosts sought for Iraqis

June 10, 2014

Alesha Briscoe is offering families in Starkville a chance to help Iraqi youth change the face of their country simply by offering them a guest bedroom.

The Iraqi Young Leaders Exchange Program (IYLEP) is an international program sponsored and funded by the U.S. Department of State that invites undergraduate Iraqi college students to study for one month at an American university and develop a project to better their communities. Briscoe, IYLEP director for MSU, said while IYLEP students spend most of the month on campus, a key component of the program is two nights with an American family designed to encourage diversity, cultural understanding and understanding of a theme specific to each participating university.
