Host families needed for visiting Japanese high school students in August.

The Japan-America Society of Pennsylvania advertises a need for host families in Pittsburgh for a group of Japanese high school students visiting as part of the TOMODACHI program in August. Via the group's mailing list:
This August you have the opportunity to open your home to one or two students from Aichi Prefecture, Japan! Hosting a student can provide a connection to last a lifetime.

Twelve seniors from Nihon Fukushi University High School near Nagoya will be coming to Pittsburgh for a musical exchange with local high school students. Host families are needed to provide an immersive American experience for these students for 9 nights.

A small honorarium will be provided. Host families will provide breakfast and dinner, and will drop off and pick up the students daily at Pittsburgh CAPA School downtown. We encourage hosts to plan fun activities with the students in their free time.

To apply, please fill out this form or contact the JASP office at (412) 433-5021 with questions.

All members of the host family age 18 and older must consent to a criminal background check.
