How are Hosts evaluated?
We appreciate that our hosts are volunteers and that they are genuinely interested in welcoming international visitors. At the same time, we seek to protect the interests of our visitors as well as our hosts. All international visitors will be asked to provide informal feedback on their experience with hospitality.
In the case of negative feedback, WorldDenver will evaluate whether additional support or guidance will remedy the situation. If guidance can improve future occasions of hospitality, WorldDenver will provide specific suggestions, feedback, and further information to the hosts. If WorldDenver believes that the hosts are not willing to address the issues raised by the visitors, or are not willing or able to contribute in a positive way to the visitors’ experience in the U.S., WorldDenver will not grant the hosts further hosting privileges.
Media and Social Networking
Please keep in mind that the safety or reputation of international visitors may be in jeopardy if their names, job titles, and other identifiers such as photos and videos are posted on social networking sites. At the beginning of each program, WorldDenver is notified on whether or not the international visitors wish to have their words quoted, their likeness depicted (in photos or sketches) or their conversations recorded. However, it is the responsibility of each host to get individual consent from all hosted guests before posting any information on a social networking site or publishing an article.
