About

Volunteer to host a 10th grade German exchange student in your home from January to June 2018 (the 2nd semester of this school year) through INTER-ED (inter-ed.org). Share time, conversations, experiences, and build a cross-cultural friendship. If you have children of any age, this is a wonderful opportunity for them to learn about being a host, share their culture, and learn about a new culture...right in their own home! Host provides room, meals, love, and acceptance. Students come with own insurance and spending money.

I am looking for hosts who live in the boundaries for San Clemente High School, Dana Hills High in Dana Point, or Capistrano Valley High School in Mission Viejo, as students from our program have been approved to attend these schools. I would ideally like to find families by the end of November so I can make sure the students are enrolled in their schools before the holiday break.

We have two students, one boy and one girl, who are in need of host homes/families. Consider doing this with a friend, neighbor, or family member, that is host these two students in two homes, and you can share the American experience with your students together!

My name is Deann Rios, and I am the INTER-ED representative for San Diego/Orange County. If you become a host, I will also orient you to this experience support you and your exchange student throughout his/her time here. I would love to send you more information and profiles for the students. Please contact me to learn more.
