Share the Blessings of your Home
If you have checked out my blog for long, you should be aware that I have hosted foreign exchange students for several years now. Not only am I a host parent, I am also a coordinator for the EF Foundation. A coordinator finds host families for exchange students and does all of the things that the State Dept. deems necessary to make sure the family is a safe environment for the students. We are already looking for families to host students for the 2011-2012 school year. A new program just started is the Recruiter Program. After filling out an application and having a background check done, a Recruiter will be able to find possible family leads, turn them over to a coordinator to follow up on, and receive $100 for every family that signs up. If you think you would be interested in becoming a Host Family, a Recruiter, or a Coordinator, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find more information at http://www.effoundation.org/ . This work is very rewarding, it is a way to learn about other cultures and a way to make a positive impact on a young person. Thanks in advance for thinking about and maybe acting on hosting an exchange student!
