Host families needed for fall 2017!

Newton North and Newton South High Schools are looking for host famillies for three high-school-aged Chinese exchange students and two adult Chinese exchange teachers from the Jingshan School this fall (September 2 to January 13). Families interested in hosting teachers do not need to have children in the home; families interested in hosting students may have children of any age. Please encourage all of your friends and neighbors to sign up!

This is an amazing opportunity for a family to learn about Chinese culture while sharing their own culture and traditions. Prior host families have truly enjoyed the experience, and every year we have families who volunteer to host again. Please note that federal law prohibits us from offering financial compensation to host families, but the experience of hosting a foreign visitor in your home is quite rewarding in and of itself.If you are interested or just want to learn more, please contact Global Programs Manager Samantha Mandel at samantha_mandel@newton.k12.ma.us or 857-636-0921. Thank you for your help!
