Host families needed for Chinese exchange program

From the Newton Public Schools Global Education Programs

Newton’s Chinese exchange program is urgently in need of host famillies for three high-school aged Chinese exchange students and two adult Chinese exchange teachers this fall. Please help us out! Families of middle school students have hosted before with great success. Students are fifteen years old, have excellent English, and are excited to take part in American family life. They enroll in classes at Newton North or South for the duration of their hosting dates (September 2, 2017 to January 13, 2018). Prior host families have enjoyed the experience and said this is an amazing opportunity to learn about Chinese culture while sharing their own culture and traditions. Please note that federal law prohibits us from offering financial compensation to host families.
