Host families needed in Pittsburgh for visiting Yasuda Women's University students from August to January.

Via Yasuda Women's University.

The University of Pittsburgh's English Language Institute will once again welcome a cohort of students from Hiroshima's Yasuda Women's University (安田女子大学), and GlobalPittsburgh is recruiting host families ahead of their stay.
- The students are all females of 19-20 years old; most of them have "fair" level of English. They will be learning English at the English Language Institute at the University of Pittsburgh in Oakland.
- There will be monthly compensation for hosting.
- The approximate dates of the program are between August 29, 2017 and January 21, 2018.
- The student will need a separate furnished bedroom with a bed, dresser or closet, desk (optional), adequate lighting to study, and heat/air.
- The students cannot be placed in the same home with other Japanese students, Japanese natives or male students.
- Host families are requested to include the student in their family meals with an option for the student to pack their lunch.
- The host should be located conveniently on a direct bus line to Oakland and/or with a max of 40 minute commute.
- The students will be attending the University on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and have a decent amount of homework daily. They will be engaged in many activities provided by University and GlobalPittsburgh.
