To host international students
The Interlink Language Center at Valparaiso University is searching for families to host international students enrolled in the intensive English program. Families must live in Valparaiso and be able to provide a student with a private bedroom. Students pay their host families $670 a month for a private bedroom, two meals per day, Internet access, and transportation to and from the University. Most Interlink students are 18 to 27 years old. Since students do not have their own transportation, families are responsible for getting them to campus by 8:20 a.m. on weekdays and picking them up in the afternoon. Rebecca Shelton, director of the language center, said having international students live with American families is a rewarding experience for both. “It’s a huge plus for students to stay with a host family because they’re speaking English all the time in a natural setting and are learning about American culture as well,” Shelton said. “The benefits to families also are enormous because they learn about other cultures, develop new friendships, and learn how people in other countries see America.” Once families apply to be a host family, the Interlink staff will schedule a visit to look at the accommodations. All families, including those with or without children, working or retired couples, are welcome to participate in the homestay program. Those interested in participating in the homestay cultural enrichment program should contact Yvonne Schwedland at or 219-405-8571. Students enroll in nine-week sessions throughout the year. The next term begins August 20.

Indiana Heritage Corps
The Department of Natural Resources is looking to recruit 24 volunteers to work on trails this fall at four state parks for the Indiana Heritage Corps (IHC), an AmeriCorps program administered through the Division of State Parks and Reservoirs.

IHC members will clean, restore, and construct 25 cumulative miles of trail in the four parks. IHC candidates should be at least 17 years of age, U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents, be able to pass a strict FBI background check, and be able to make a 3 ½ month commitment to the program (Sept. 4 to Dec. 14). IHC, which started Jan. 1, is funded through Indiana’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. Interested and qualified candidates should email a résumé and cover letter to .

Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson recently announced national recognition for the voter education portal, “Who Are Your Elected Officials?” The one-of-a-kind tool is being showcased at an IT conference in San Diego by its developer, 39°north. Hoosiers can find out who is representing them from the federal government down to the township level. Other states may soon benefit from the expertise offered by 39°north and its “Who Are Your Elected Officials” application found on the secretary of state’s website. The Bloomington-based company was built from the ground up by Chris Walls and Perm Radhakrishnan who will make a presentation on its products at an international software developers’ conference in California. The “Who Are Your Elected Officials” website allows Hoosier voters to enter their home address and view a map with their elected officials. Federal, state, county, municipal, township, and school board officials are all readily available, and the website includes contact information such as each official’s website, phone number, or email. “The partnership between the secretary of state’s office and 39°north has allowed Indiana to provide the resources necessary for an informed electorate,” said Lawson.  “I’m particularly proud because this phenomenal tool was built from concept to completion in Indiana.  This gives local elected leaders such confidence in the quality and integrity of the service Chris and his team provide. Hoosier voters can access contact information for over 12,000 elected officials at all levels of government, and the results are customized to each voter’s address.  My office is proud to be associated with 39°north, and I’m confident our partnership will serve as a model for other states looking to provide this valuable service to their citizens.” The ‘Who Are Your Elected Officials’ website may be accessed on the Election Division homepage of secretary of state’s website at
