Host Families Needed for Japanese 4-H Youth

Here's a great way to travel internationally without ever leaving home: Host a Japanese 4-H member in your home this summer! Japanese youth ages 12-18 will visit the U.S. from the third week of July through the third week of August, and they need families to show them what life in the States is like! You do not have to do anything special; inbound delegates will live your daily life, eat your food, and participate in the activities that your family enjoys. Families do need to have a child the same gender and approximate age of the Japanese youth, but that's about the only requirement. If you are interested in opening your home to another culture and a great learning experience, please contact the Extension Office right away!
