Host Homes Needed

The Eugene Youth Exchange orientation weekend is approaching and we are in need of families to host the exchange students during their weekend visit. Here are the details:

What: Orientation for the inbound and outbound Rotary Youth Exchange students
When: January 11-13. Students will arrive at 6pm on Friday
Where: The students will need transportation to/from Agnes Stewart Middle School in Springfield (900 S 32nd St, Springfield, OR 97478)

Host families will be responsible for dinner Friday, breakfast/dinner on Saturday, and breakfast on Sunday. Each family can take 3-4 students (or more!) for the weekend and the students will be bringing sleeping bags/pillows (they are usually happy to sleep anywhere, including the floor). This is a really fun way to meet some of the students and learn about their cultures without the 3 month host family commitment. If you’re able to host please let Kate Stokes know how many students you can host and what gender you prefer ASAP.
