Host Family for Swiss International Student Needed

contribute's picture

Program: Our international student program is thriving. We have thirteen students in well placed families this year and two first semester students are extending for the full year. We have three second semester students arriving in January. Two are already placed, however we need a family for a Swiss German 17 year old boy. Please consider this opportunity.

Support HHS: By hosting you'll also be contributing to our school and community. Tuition fees from international students help to support our language programs within the district.

Stipend: To help defray expenses incurred while hosting an international student, a $700/mo. stipend, per student, is provided to each host family.
