In search of volunteer host families for Exchange Students who will be staying in the San Jacinto valley. The students will arrive on Thursday, July 16th and depart on Tuesday, August 4th. Students attend classes and activities from Monday through Friday. They are at home with their host families weekday evenings and weekends. This is your chance to create a fun family experience with a teen from another country. This is a great opportunity to make a new friend/pen pal and get rewarded with cherished family memories. Students are fully insured and have all their own spending money. They are in need of loving homes, meals, transportation to Hemet mall each weekday, and a bedroom to sleep in. They can share a room with your child as long as they no more than 3 years age difference. An air mattresses will be made available for you if you would like to borrow one.
