Preparing for Our International Exchange Student for 2018-19
We are hosting a young man from Brazil this next school year. We are super excited and are starting to look for host families — the key to this program. Being a host family is truly a rewarding experience and in some cases a forever extension of your family. We offer three homes to our students that roughly map out on the calendar in thirds; (e.g. late August – Christmas, Janary – first part of April & April – June). The first home needs to be in the South Eugene High School area to comply with the district guidelines. We offer “respite care” in the event the host families needs a break.
The student receives $100.00 per month and our club pays for their cell phone bill. Host families are supported by our committee all of the time. We TREASURE them! It’s truly is an awesome experience (I hosted last year) and I encourage everyone to get involved in some way. If you, or you know of someone that is willing to host please contact me: Debbie Snow 208-850-7729 or debbiesnow12@gmail. com. If you have other ideas for recruiting families or resources, please reach out to me so our committee can follow up.
