Host a Guatemalan exchange student this year for 2 months

TPCA is partnering this year with Intercultural Experiences, a short-term student visitor program in Guatemala. We already have four TPCA families who have signed on to host a student from October 19 – December 13 this fall. This wonderful organization has informed us that they still have 13 boys aged 15 – 17 that need a host family for this fall. Students have experienced a 6 month preparation program, speak English, come with their own insurance and spending funds and are here to experience the American culture and share with us about Guatemala as an ambassador of their country. If you feel called to open your home to one of these students and would like more information, please contact Mrs. Toni Kanzler at tkanzler@tpcs.org.
