We received this note from Kelsey Maloney at PAX. Note: If you live in Baltimore, Maryland and are interested in hosting vegetarian exchange students, you can contact Meredith Safford at 410-382-5359 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Good afternoon! My name is Kelsey Maloney and I work for PAX. PAX- Program of Academic Exchange is a Department of State designated nonprofit international high school exchange organization. Each year PAX facilitates in the placing of some of the best students from over 70 countries around the world. Students are given the opportunity to study in the US for one academic school year, thus promoting cross-cultural learning.
I am writing to you today to share with you a unique opportunity in which I hope you will share with your members. We are currently looking for host families that can accommodate vegetarian students for the upcoming 2013-2014 academic school year. We at PAX feel the best suited families for these students are those who are familiar with a vegetarian diet and lifestyle. All of our students have gone through tremendous screening and have interviewed at length to be admitted into our program. Students come with full medical insurance and are responsible for all personal expenditures. We ask that host families provide living arrangements, a suitable study environment, and participation in family meals.
Hosting is a unique and rewarding experience that builds bridges, creates life-long friendships, and connects the world one family at a time. This is an opportunity to experience a foreign culture right in the comfort of your own home!
If you know anyone interested in hosting for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year please pass this information along.
