Can you host an Italian teen?

By
From page A12 | June 22, 2014 |

An outgoing, energetic, 16-year-old high school student from Italy is taking a bold step to attend a four-week English language program offered at UC Davis from July 7 to Aug. 7. He has been to the United States to visit relatives, gone to a Scout camp and attended a friend of the family’s marriage.

Although he has dyslexia and does not read or write independently, he does use text messaging and Facebook. He loves America and this will be his third visit; he is eager to improve his English language skills. Some of his favorite activities include watching movies, playing video games, doing free climbing, riding bicycles, acting and enjoying all kinds of music, from classical to pop.

If you are a family with one or more high school-aged boys with similar interests, we are looking for you to host this young man for approximately four weeks. We ask that you provide a furnished room, offer three meals a day and provide transportation as needed. To help offset expenses, there is a nightly stipend.

If the boys become good friends and there is an interest, the student’s family would enjoy having his American brother or brothers visit Italy.

Time is of the essence! If this sounds like an experience you would like to share with a young man seeking to advance himself, please contact me at International Student Support and Educational Services at lneblett@isses-community.com or 530-848-5059.
