Our students are arriving this Thursday and we still have about 15 to place in homes. EF Educational Homestay Programs Needs your Help! On July 21st, 90 students from Hong Kong, China, Italy, and Austria will be arriving to the Conejo Valley area for an exchange program. They are still in need of volunteer host families for 15 students. A stipend to offset the cost of hosting will be provided. Please contact program Site Director Heather Behrens at firstname.lastname@example.org or (805) 766-0861. All students come with their own spending money. We provide bus service when possible. In addition, we can offer a small stipend to offset costs.
By hosting international students you can enrich their understanding of local culture and customs, and help your host student pick up expressions and slang with greater ease, as well as acquiring a more authentic accent. Most importantly: our students develop meaningful relationships with their families that often last far beyond the duration of their language course, and our families regularly return to host international students again.
Being a host family is a great way to experience cultural exchange and welcome an international student into your home. It is also a way of developing lifelong connections, as well as representing your community internationally. Take advantage of the opportunity and try hosting with EF today!
