+ Program seeks host families
A nonprofit dedicated to providing an international student exchange needs host families this summer.
EF Homestay seeks homes for 60 Spanish and French students this summer.
Exchange students will sharpen their English skills by “immersion” with their host families. The students will have field trips twice a week, as well.
Spanish students will be in Bradenton July 2 through July 28, while French students will be in the area July 8 through July 28. Host families must be able to provide a bed, meals and welcoming environment, as well as a passion for sharing their American culture.
Students in host families also can earn up to 60 hours of community service.
For more information on the program or to become a host family, call 284-4529 or EFChela@gmail.com.
