Looking for 2018-2019 Language Ambassadors (LAs) Host Families!

Want to know more about the LA program, and what is expected of a host family?

This school year is not yet over and we still have lots of time to enjoy our current LAs! But, can you believe that planning for the 2018-19 LA program has already begun?! The applicants are being interviewed and the search for next year Host Families is underway. Hosting is an unbelievable opportunity to expose your children and family to the Spanish language and culture – one that will gift your family with a lasting friendship and close bond to another country, while possibly improving everyone’s Spanish!

If you are interested in hosting and/or want more information, please contact Kim Gelperin at kimgelp@gmail.com.
