Volunteer Host Families needed (Salem/Keizer)

Kathy Lawrence, OR has been named Academic Program Administrator for Oregon by Cultural Homestay International. She will be recruiting and overseeing Academic Coordinators and seeking host families for overseas exchange students coming to the US for the upcoming school year. Kathy has been involved in the non - profit educational exchange program for 30 years.

We still have many outstanding students who will be coming from South America, Europe and Asia that are looking forward to attending five months to a year of high school in the United States. According to Academic Program Administrator Kathy Lawrence, “Having an international student become part of your family for a school semester or for an entire year is a truly rewarding experience.”

The students are excited about attending high school in the USA, improve their language skills and learn about our day-to-day life. Lawrence says you don’t have to have teens in your family to qualify as a Host Family. Families of all ages, with or without children are needed. Many of the students want to be hosted by small children in the family so that they can feel uninhibited in speaking English.

If you can't commit to the whole school year or semester, we do accept welcome families who will welcome students for 1 to 2 months to get them settled in the school while we look for a family for them for the remainder of the year. Students are anxiously waiting to know where they will be going for the school year. So please call today.

Cultural Homestay International, based in San Rafael, California, is a non-profit educational organization that has been placing exchange students Since 1980. Kathy’s office is based in Keizer and has local coordinators all over the state.

Anyone interested in working as an Academic Coordinator or in sharing their lives with an international student as a host family should contact Kathy Lawrence
