Host Families Need Aug. 22-27 for Chinese Exchange Students

August 19, 2016 at 1:03 pm

The Chinese Culture and Education Center is urgently looking for host families.

Due to a misunderstanding with area schools, a group of 40 academically gifted Chinese exchange students is currently without housing for the week of August 22-August 27.

Because of the unexpected situation,  the Chinese Culture and Education Center is currently offering a stipend of $200 dollars per student housed.

Each student will need a separate bed (room can be shared with other children), meals (breakfast and dinner), and transportation to and from school. We’re looking for friendly, caring hosts who are willing to include Chinese children in their everyday lives and treat them like part of the family.  Most of the children are in the fourth, fifth or sixth grade.

If interested, please contact:
