A diverse, welcoming community of open hearts and minds since 1948
Yesterday I got an interesting request from my roomate (who has been to UUCA a few times and loves it) at the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University where I completed my M.S. in Conflict Analysis and Resolution.
They have a group of student delegates arriving in July with the Benjamin Franklin Summer Institute sponsored by the U.S. State Department. They are looking for families in the area that can provide a 10 day homestay for the students, so they can have a cultural experience while visiting with diplomats and academics.
This would be a fantastic opportunity to teach these students about UU culture and ideas that they could take back to their home countries, but also the UUCA experience would compliment their education experience for the 10 days here. :)
If you interested in providing a homestay please contact, Tamar Palandjian by email email@example.com and in the subject line indicate “Homestay”. Below is the information I pulled from the flyer.
HOST AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT
Isn’t it exciting to learn about other cultures?
What if you had the opportunity to do so this summer?
Have you ever thought about hosting an international exchange student?
Perhaps you would consider hosting a student from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan or Uzbekistan for just 10
days this summer!
