Spanish Teen Hosting Opportunity

Have you ever thought about hosting an international student? This summer is a great time to give it a try! Host families with kids 3-17 years old are needed for Spanish high school students June 25-July 16. Students will have weekday classes and activities at PSU (commute on public transit) and look forward to spending evenings and weekends with their host experiencing American culture and practicing their English. This is a great way to share cultures and build international friendships. Everyone should do it at least once! Orientation, 24/7 support, and a hosting stipend are provided. Read some student letters! For more information, please contact Kellie Irish at kellie@exploretheworld.org, 971-387-6388, or visit ACES' Portland website.

What is a host family's responsibility?

Host families provide three meals per day and plenty of daily conversation and interaction. The students need their own beds but can share a room with a host sibling of a similar age and the same gender. The students bring their own spending money and are covered by comprehensive medical and accident insurance. Orientation materials, 24/7 support, and a small stipend are provided to host families.
