International Visitors Program

The International Visitors Program provides experiences in which members of PTPI’s global chapter network can meet and experience each other’s way of life. This is done through homestays for visitors from other countries, which foster mutual understanding of each other’s culture.

Homestays offer members the opportunity to:
  • Interact with chapter members in/from other countries
  • Experience new countries and regional lifestyles
  • Form international friendships
  • Increase cultural understanding and knowledge by participating in immersive cultural activities
