Add A Little International Culture to Your Life This Summer!

Host A Student From Germany!

This is a great opportunity to have an international experience while making lasting friendships and wonderful memories, all without leaving home.

We are looking for families who can open up their hearts and homes to an eager-to-learn, English-speaking student who has come to the United States to learn about American culture and improve their English. JUNE 29 – JULY 27.

Wondering what it means to be a host family? What are the responsibilities? What will your family gain from the experience?

Local program coordinators will be at the South Pasadena Farmers Market Thursday, May 9th, to answer all of your questions. Stop by our table, by the Walking Man sculpture, or contact Tara Kawakami tarakawakami.iee@gmail.com 626 399-3826
