Host A Welcoming Event Registration
National Welcoming Week is September 15-24, 2017. Even if your event falls outside of the week or is during the month of August or October, we still encourage you to register your event as a Welcoming Week event. Thank you for your commitment to host a welcoming event in Champaign County.

Events can take virtually any form—you can host a festival, a public forum, a film screening, a discussion panel, a service project, or any number of activities that connect newcomers with their receiving communities.

By filling out this form with as much detail as you would like to provide, the University YMCA New American Welcome Center will provide your group Welcoming Week event resources both branded by Welcoming America and for the Welcoming Champaign County collaborative, including promotional materials and technical support.

Created by YMCA of the USA’s national partner Welcoming America, Welcoming Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of immigrants to our communities and foster deeper connections between newcomers and their U.S.-born neighbors.

Welcoming Week Hosting Principles
As a host, I agree to following host principles:

1.) To conduct an activity that brings together local- and foreign-born community members.

2.) To provide up-to-date information regarding my event, including any changes or cancellations made once our event has been submitted.

3.) To promote the event in my community as part of Welcoming Week, and to do so in ways that promote unity and inclusivity and are in keeping with the Welcoming America brand.

4.) To represent only my organization and not Welcoming America if speaking with the media about my event.

5.) To refrain from promoting any specific policies or conducting any political activities in during my event.

6.) To share information about my event with Welcoming America for reporting purposes.
