Families sought to host students
This summer volunteer host families in Sonoma Valley are needed for 30 students from Norway, Sweden, Russia, France or Spain, part of the Education First (EF) Educational Homestay Program.
A host family is one who is willing to open their home and provide an available bed and meals for a student, while also sharing American culture through everyday routine activities.
The students will be here from June 23 through July 19.
These students are eager to visit the U.S. and look forward to improving their English skills. They will attend English and culture classes every morning at the Sonoma Community Center, and go on fun and cultural excursions in the afternoons on weekdays (under EF supervision from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.)
Students are insured, already speak English, and bring their own spending money.
Educational Homestay Program is a non-profit organization dedicated to bridging cultural gaps and breaking down barriers of language and geography, by promoting educational travel, intercultural exchange and language learning.
If you are interested in providing your family with an invaluable and “once in a lifetime” cultural experience, contact the local program leader, Sonoma resident Heloisa Heinen at (504)-994-4159, or email@example.com.
