RTP China Connection is an entity that was created to help give students from China and the United States information about educational opportunities abroad. We believe that interaction and immersion are sound building blocks for high school students to make sound decisions regarding college selection. That is why we are offering summer and winter camps for students to come to the US for college campus visits and tours.
A winter camp is set to begin from in Feb. 2011. Twenty-three students from Beijing Royal High School are coming to the United States to go on college tours throughout the US. As they are planning to visit three colleges in the RTP area, they will each need an American host family to live with for the duration of their stay.
We are looking for enthusiastic host families for a successful and enriching winter camp. An overview of some important details are as follows:
# There are 23 students from 10th,11th and 12th grades--twelve girls and eleven boys.
# The students are going to stay six nights, between February 12 to 17.
# Every family can host two students.
# $40 dollars will be paid to each host family per day.
(Breakfast will hopefully be provided but no transportation is needed.)
# If a host family hosts more students, $20 dollars per student per day will be added to the family.
# If the host family will host free of charge, then the expense will be donated to the club.
By becoming a hosting family, you create the opportunity to share the best of America with aspiring young individuals and give them a chance to learn firsthand about the American way of life. This is a great chance for you and your family to learn about another culture and make new friends along the way. Your generous contribution would be heartedly appreciated. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks.
