Perfect opportunity for community to bring world home
Wednesday, June 27, 2001
Lacey, Wash. - Parents who cannot afford to take their children
abroad this summer can take advantage of a unique opportunity to bring a
small piece of Japan or China to their home.
The Saint Martin's College Institute of Pacific Rim Studies is
looking for qualified families to invite a pair of international
students to their home for short stays in the coming months.
Host families to take students with the Chinese Middle School and
High School Cultural Exchange Programs are needed for the weekends of
July 20-22 and August 10-12. The group
consists of middle school students, ages 11-13, and high school
students, ages 14-17.
Students with the Academy of International Education Summer High
School Program need host families for a two-week period, Aug.
6-20. Monetary compensation will be provided to host families
for this 14-day stay. Boys and girls, ages 14-17, with this program are
from Kobe, Japan.
For the weekends of August 3-5 and 17-19,
host families are needed for students from the Mukogawa Women's
University and Okazaki Women's Junior College. The students in this
program are women, ages 18-21, from Kobe, Japan.
Individuals or families who can pass a Washington State criminal
background check and provide a safe, loving environment for two
international students in their homes should call Greg Westoby at
360-438-4598 or email him at
