HOST A FOREIGN EXCHANGE STUDENT!
A local educational travel nonprofit is looking for a family to host an Italian high school student in a kosher home. There’s no payment to the family but, as other PJA families can attest, it’s a great opportunity for a family to open their home and hearts to a foreign student. If you are interested, please contact Alix Nathan at 503.222.9803 or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
