Host families needed

July 7, 2014 

Part of American diplomacy is to build positive relationships with other countries. One of the ways this is done is through the Council on International Educational Exchange’s USA High School Program. Our mission is to bring high school students from other countries to an American school in order to learn more about our country and develop English skills. We need to place these students in a safe and secure home while they are here. That is where I come in. I am aiming to find host families for the students coming this fall.

As students come to America and learn about our culture and values, tolerance and understanding begin. Host families are part of providing the student with a fantastic year they will never forget. They are essential to providing students with a positive experience. If you are interested in becoming a host family and showing a student everything San Luis Obispo County has to offer, please contact the CIEE Local Coordinator at kylejanesexton@gmail.com   and visit www.ciee.org/highschool.
