Expat Host Programme – International House

Our Expat Host Programme creates a bridge between internationals in North Denmark and assimilated international or local volunteers, who help them settle in. As a mentor, you gain personal satisfaction and the possibility to share experience, while learning about different cultures and approaches on life. As a mentee, you gain professional networking opportunities, advice, feedback, and an expanded base of skills to help you in your new life in Denmark.

Who can get a host?
Any newcomer in North Denmark can participate in the program and get a host. Participation in the Expat Host Programme is free of charge, however, it requires effort and commitment to meet up minimum once a month.
Who can become a host?
Anyone who is willing to volunteer his/her time to share knowledge and help newcomers navigate around the Danish labour market, give feedback and advice regarding career and cultural opportunities. You can be Danish or international – the important thing is that you want to help a newcomer and know to some extent the Danish culture. There is a possibility to become a Cultural host or a Career host. Alternatively, it is also possible to focus on both cultural and professional (career) aspects while being a host.

International House North Denmark’s Secretariat has the responsibility of matchmaking the mentors with the mentees, and the process will be undertaken on an ongoing basis.
