Volunteer with Another Organization
Looking for Host Families for International Students
Education, Travel, and Culture is a non-profit organization that looks to place high school international students with host families. This opportunity is unpaid, but it is a great way for you to give back to students from all over the world, and get to know a different culture. We are looking for hosts for the upcoming school year, 2017-2018, but the students stay for either a semester or a full year, the families chose which they would prefer.  We do have a Facebook group that they can request to join which I give updates and information for those potentially interested: https://www.facebook.com/groups/305504956562520/ ». The only requirements that we ask of is to provide 3 meals a day, a room for them to stay in with a bed, which can be shared with someone of the same gender within 5 years of an age difference, and go through our process of apply to become a host family. If anyone would be interested you can give them my e-mail address and I would be more than happy to help them with any questions they may have. Contact: Keli Myracle, Local Coordinator ».
