- A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
1 person is interested
Fourteen (14) teenagers from Brazil will be in the triangle area January 15th through January 27th participating in an exchange program that is sponsored by the US State Department. These participants are selected for their academic achievement and leadership abilities and have been fully vetted by our Embassy.
We are looking for families to host these youth in their homes: to provide a place to sleep, transportation to a central meeting location, breakfasts, and some dinners. We prefer to place 2 same gendered guests per house for the duration of the program, but can accommodate interested families who only have room for 1 or can accommodate a guest for only part of the program. T
he students are fluent in English.
