“I loved learning about her culture and family and introducing her to a lot of culture here.” – Host
“The turkey was so good. I had fun and tried a lot of new things.” – Pathway student
“My favorite experience over Thanksgiving was talking with them while doing puzzles, getting to hear more about their life/dreams, and watching the civil war.” – Thanksgiving Host Family
“We got to see snow at Mt Hood. This was my first time seeing snow!” – Pathway Student
These are just a few of the positive experiences homestay families and students had over Thanksgiving. Would you consider hosting a student at Christmas?
There are still a number of opportunities to host students over Corban’s December break. International students would benefit from a Christmas Homestay December 23rd-30th, hosting students over other days during break (Dec 9th-Jan 9th), or a small group sponsoring a lunch/dinner for students who remain in Salem.
