We have a group of 20 high school kids from the Doshisha School in Japan, the sister school of Amherst College coming in July 23-August 11th-the school has sent these kids for many years and it’s a wonderful cultural experience. During the mornings they have classes at Amherst College and in the afternoons we take them on field trips (your kids can come too) to Old Sturbridge Village, Multi-Arts camp, Mount Sugarloaf, the Hitchcock Center and Nursing homes, and we have sports days, barbeques and more! We are still in touch with many of the kids we’ve hosted. They bring their own money for outside activities and you will get a stipend of around $380 approximately 2-3 months after they leave. If you can only do part of the homestay that could be arranged and there are always carpools! If you can help or know of someone who can, please contact Diane Davidson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
