Hosts Needed for Exchange Students!

There are still 3 students needing placement! Please see this post for more information.

Here is a message from Sharon:

I am very happy to share with you a NEW HOSTING OPPORTUNITY. I have several students who are arriving in August to attend school in the Lebanon Area for the 2008-09 school year. These students all speak English, have their own insurances and bring their own pocket money for expenses. Host families provide room and board and receive a very generous monthly hosting stipend!! If you have ever considered hosting a student, but were worried about the expense, this stipend relieves that worry.

This is a great way to learn about another culture and share America with a foreign teen. Are you willing to open your hearts and home to one of these students? Please contact me right away if you are interested in learning more about this fantastic opportunity! I need to get families in place for these kids as soon as possible!! Call: 717-272-9565 or email blessingsgaloreptl AT yahoo DOT com!

A bit more info:

For more information, please visit www.nacelopendoor.org. The FAQ link will answer alot of questions . . . Students have their own spending money and buy their own books, school supplies, personal items, etc. Host families provide a loving home, meals and transportation.(Most families live within busing distance to the school!). These students will all be attending school in Lebanon, so the host families must live within a reasonable distance to the city.

There are 3 boys left to place:

Sungwoo
will be in the 9th grade. He likes movie, playing the guitar, computers, sporting events, soccer, baseball. table tennis, horseback riding, He hope to have a job someday in sports marketing, He comes from a family of four and He is a protestant. He says he is a cheerful and sociable person.

Dong Uk

He is interested in broadcasting and hopes to be an actor someday. He cannot eat seafood. He says of himself " I think my strongest point is to consider others. Getting along with people is another strong point. However I'm kind of timid, so I try to change it."

Ja Hyun will be in the 9th grade. He enjoys fishing, pets, sporting events, playing piano, insect collecting, soccer and Tae kwon do. He is interested in the building industry and s looking forward to sharing his Korean culture with his host family and classmates. He will cook Korean food for host family if they want.
