Volunteers needed for the first few weeks of school to serve as a welcome family to international students! By being a welcome family, you are contributing to understanding other cultures around the world and helping an international student make the first step of his or her journey in America!
A welcome family:
provides a home and a warm welcome for a student for approximately 6-12 weeks while SAE identifies a permanent family within the same community
gives your student an amazing start by letting him or her settle into the community, begin school, and get acclimated to American customs and cultures
is also a good option if your family has other obligations during the year or simply wants to try out the hosting experience short-term
