All, please see below for an opportunity to host Japanese exchange students. Contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Chiara for student profiles and more info.
Dear Friend of YFU,
My name is Chiara Goetzke and I am an International Student Placement Intern with Youth For Understanding USA. We are a non-profit, volunteer-based international exchange organization which has been placing exchange students for 62 years. We have an excellent reputation for preparation and support of families and students.
Each year, we welcome over 1900 international students that spend one school year in the US and experience the daily life of an American teenager. The exchange students live in a host family and go to a local high school.
We are currently seeking host families in the State of Florida who are interested in hosting a Japanese boy or girl, arriving in August for the coming school year or maybe just one school semester. Families provide a place to live and three daily meals, plus encouragement, guidance, love and limits. The students pay for their other personal expenses and become a true family member sharing in the real life, fun and responsibilities of the family.
We were hoping that you would be able to help us to reach out to interested families.
I’m from Germany staying in the US for three month doing an internship with YFU. I’ve also been an exchange student with YFU two years ago. I know what a great opportunity it is to study abroad, learn a new language and experience a completely different lifestyle.
Attached to this email you will find flyers about hosting, volunteering and going abroad. I have also included several profiles of Japanese students below that will be arriving in August and we are seeking host families for in Florida. I would be grateful if you could share these with anyone that you feel might be interested in hosting one of our Japanese exchange students.
I greatly appreciate your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact me, Chiara Goetzke at email@example.com or call at 904-401-9966 or the Florida Field Director, Marsha Hurst at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 904-881-0068, for more information about our program or to schedule a presentation. You may also visit our website at www.yfuusa.org to learn more about YFU.
