Become a host family for exchange students from China
2010-05-28 · By Editor
24 boys and girls from China are eager to spend two weeks this summer with families in the Long Beach area. The students, ages 13-18, want to live the normal everyday life of their host families, speak English and gain a better understanding of American culture.
The students, from the Beijing and Shanghai areas, are sponsored by Nacel Open Door, a non-profit organization. Nacel Open Door’s mission is to promote international understanding and language education by offering accessible, quality exchange programs with a well-structured support network.
Host families are the heart of the exchange program. They welcome a student as a new member of the family and share their home, lifestyle and activities. Nacel Open Door welcomes diversity in its host families. Students are matched with families according to their interests and family priorities.
The students are accompanied by chaperons that also stay in the area with families and provide an excellent support network. Students bring their own spending money and have insurance coverage.
The homestay dates are July 11 through July 25, 2010. For more information on the exchange programs contact Shelly Pocinich, 310-384-0712, firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Nacel Open Door website.
