About

I am with a non-profit exchange student organization and we are looking for a volunteer host family that would be interested in hosting a 10th grade Riverstone student. Tommy is here until June on a J-1 visa and therefore is not eligible to live in the new Riverstone dorms on River and 13th, but can take the bus from there. He is currently living with a temporary host family, and we would appreciate your help finding him a home for the school year.

Tommy is a very fun, light-hearted, polite and active young man from South Korea. He writes: "Hello, my name is Sungwoo (Tommy). I am a 15 year old that enjoys playing the piano, travel, and playing sports (soccer, basketball and baseball are my favorites). I also find it very interesting and intriguing to meet with people with different thoughts, which is why I came to study in the U.S. It has already been a great opportunity for me to share my own culture and communicate with different people and I am excited for the rest of the year at in Boise."

If you are someone or know of someone that may be able to help, contact Angie at angie@cieetreasurevalley.org or 208-409-2868 for more information!
