Friday 7 p.m.: Elyria Catholic HS host family info session

Are you interested in opening your heart and home to an international student attending Elyria Catholic High School? Can you provide a warm and supportive family environment for a young person from another country who is studying in the United States? If so, you may be perfectly suited to serve as a host family for an international student!

We will be holding an information session at Elyria Catholic High School in the EC Auditorium on Friday, June 28 at 7 p.m., should you wish to attend and learn more.

EC, with the help of The Cambridge Institute of International Education, will be enrolling a group of international students for the 2013-2014 school year. In order to provide these students with an ideal American experience, The Cambridge Institute is seeking qualified families interested in sharing the unique experience of hosting an international student. Many hosts have found that welcoming an international student into their family is enlightening and rewarding and leads to invaluable opportunities and lifelong friendships.

Please know that host families will have support and assistance from a local coordinator. To help defer costs, host families will receive a monthly stipend of $800 for 10 months.

To learn more or to apply to become a host family, please write to the folks at Cambridge's sister homestay service company, Green Planet, at info@gphomestay.com; visit them online at www.gphomestay.com; or give them a call at 781-362-2559.
