Host families needed for January 9-27 visit by Costa Rican students

Brothers Around the World is looking for host families for 12 male students who will be visiting us from Colegio LaSalle in San Jose, Costa Rica. This is the fourth year CBHS has conducted this exchange with our Costa Rican brothers.

 

The students will be visiting January 9-27, 2018. Most are about 16-17 years old, and are very proficient in English. This exchange is an opportunity for them to get to know American culture and customs. They will attend classes each day at CBHS, each one shadowing his host student. From time to time, they will go on field trips during the school day, and there will be events organized on the weekends so they can get to know other host students and families involved in the exchange.

 

Your son does not need to be enrolled in a Spanish class for your family to be considered for this experience. You need only space in your hearts and homes for one more teenage son for three weeks. Our students grow very attached to their Costa Rican brothers while they are here visiting, and the opportunity is an experience your family will not regret.

 

Please talk this over with your family and consider hosting one of our exchange students in January. Please fill out the intake form found at https://goo.gl/forms/n7qPoJ1Nhp0hNHKu2 by November 10.
