My name is Jessica and I work with a non-profit NACEL Open Door that does students exchanges in South Florida. I am contacting you because I have an opportunity for the members of your group. We are looking for families to host French students, ages 14 to 18, who will visit South Florida from July 7-August 1. Students spend weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in an educational program. Evenings and weekends are spent with your family living life as usual. Families are given a small stipend to cover food and students bring their own spending money for any other expenses.
The reason I am specifically contacting our group is because we are a group of people that love to get out there and experience South Florida. Having 1 or 2 students from France would give you an opportunity to experience all of what South Florida has to offer together. When you bring a student from France into your home you get to expose yourself to French culture and language without having to travel abroad. You can forge a relationship with students from France and gain an understanding of the student's culture. And if one day you do decide to go abroad you will have a friend in France : )
To learn more about becoming a host family, call Jessica at [masked] or email me at [address removed].
The students look forward to being a part of a family and experiencing a new culture.
If you cannot host, please pass this on to someone you think may be able to..
Thank you very much,
NACEL Open Door Local Coordinator
