[ARCHIVED] Families needed to host students visiting from Japan this summer!

Families needed to host students visiting from Japan this summer.

High School students from Kyoto, Japan will be in the area July 29 - Aug 18. They will be taking English classes at Amherst College on weekday mornings, and involved in cultural activities in the afternoons, 9 am - 4 pm. Host families carpool to and from classes when possible. Famiies are invited to join the groupwhen we go rollerskating, mini-golfing, hiking, on trips to Tanglewood and to Six Flags! We have a lot of fun!

Host families provide meals, a bed (in a separate room OR with a child of the same gender), and conversation! Host families receive a stipend of $20 / night to offset expenses.

Please call Laurie Boosahda at 665-3111 or e-mail laurieboosahda@hotmail.com for more information
