EVERYONE WHO LIVES ANYWHERE BETWEEN GRASS VALLEY TO SACRAMENTO:
If you, OR ANYONE YOU KNOW, might be interested in hosting an exchange student from Spain from June 30th-July 24th please let me know! I'm working with a student exchange company called American Discovery, and I need to find host families for 7 more high school students, and 1 female chaperon.
The students are high-school aged, eager to improve their English, and so excited about spending three weeks in the United States. They come completely insured, with their own spending money, and the cost of all of our activities is included in their program fee. The only additional cost to the host families is the extra mouth to feed for just three weeks.
Right now I am responsible for recruiting host families, but once the students arrive the real fun begins! I'm in charge of coordinating awesome trips and activities for the students AND their host families during the three weeks. It's a great way to practice Spanish, and an even better way to learn about a different culture, PLUS you (and/or your kids) can participate in the trips and activities (hosted by me) to San Francisco, Six Flags, AND Sun Splash. (I'm sure it's the Sun Splash that will really seal the deal for a lot of you).
American Discovery charters a bus for all of the far out of town trips, as well as provides transportation to and from the airport. Host families only responsibility in regards to these trips is to get the students to the meet up points.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, if you or anyone you know might even kind of sort of maybe want to know even a tiny little bit about this program please contact me!
