Another Exchange Student Opportunity

This morning we received a request for help in finding homes for 2 South Korean exchange students. Time is short, so the sooner you decide to accept one into your home the better. If interested, please call the number listed or contact Sue Franck via e-mail sfranck (at) nacelopendoor.org. Thanks!

We truly do need assistance.  We have three very nice South Korean teenagers coming to Rochester to attend Lourdes High School.  We have a potential host family for one of the young ladies, but we have a girl and a boy for whom we are still seeking homes.  Nacel Open Door is a highly reputable high school age exchange organization, and we’ve had students at Lourdes for several years.  This is the first time we’ve had difficulty locating suitable homes, though, and are reaching out to the community.

 

Our students’ natural parents pay for all of the private school tuition and expenses, uniforms, bus transportation, etc.  The students come with their own personal spending money, and are covered by medical insurance.  Our host families provide a warm environment, a private bedroom, meals (although students purchase school lunches), and basic care.  Our families come from all walks of life, with a common goal of providing a South Korean teenage with a good experience while attending high school and preparing for the future.

 

In return, our families receive a host family stipend to help cover any expenses that may be incurred by having another member in the household.  Additionally, we have an experienced and trained staff and local representative on hand to assist our families and students throughout the school year.  You are never alone when hosting with Nacel Open Door, we are always here to help.

 

To learn more about us, please contact our website at www.nacelopendoor.org.  The direct link to the Private School Program is http://www.nacelopendoor.org/exchange-programs/private-school-program.html.  I am being so bold as to attach flyers giving a little information about two of our students, in the hope that you will help us reach out to people in the community who may be interested in assisting these exceptional young people.  Additionally, if you refer people to us who do host one of the students, we will provide the camp with a $250 Referral Fee for each placement.

Please do call me at 800-622-3553 extension 603 with any questions you may have, or respond back via email.  I am very anxious to speak to you further, and hope we can work together on behalf of these two deserving young people.

Rotary Club Exchange Student Opportunity

Hi all,

Samantha Rother from the Rotary Club contacted us about a great opportunity. Please see the recruitment flier at the end of this post if you are interested.

I saw your recent article about Camp Moon-Hwa in the Post Bulletin and it sounds like an incredible program and that we might share some similar goals.  Our Rotary Club hosts an international exchange student each year and this year we will be welcoming a 16 year old girl, Chae-won from South Korea.  I’m currently seeking host families for her and am wondering if you may be willing to share the opportunity with your network?  Hosting through our program is only a three month commitment as Chae-won will stay with three different families during her time here to get a wide range of experiences. In return, she would be able her family the opportunity to get to know here and share her South Korean heritage.  Rotary supports all of our families along the way, offers financial support to the student to minimize financial expectations of the family and sends our students to Lourdes High School so they can ride the school bus from anywhere within the Rochester School District.  I’m also seeking host families for another student, Lara from Spain.  I’ve attached additional information on the program.  Do you know any families who may be interested in this opportunity or would you be willing to share with your network?  I’d be happy to talk more with a family in person.  Our program also offers students the opportunity to travel the world on exchange, this year one of our students will be going to South Korea.  If you ever know a student who may be interested, please don’t hesitate to refer them to our website.
