Looking for Host Families

IWHS is excited to offer once again the Kumamoto Exchange Program to our students during the 2019-2020 school year. Two IWHS juniors will be heading off to Japan in July, and we will be welcoming two students from our partner high school in Kumamoto to San Antonio in mid-August. But we need your help to keep this program running! We are looking for some extraordinary host families for the two young ladies arriving from Kumamoto next fall to help them have a rewarding experience here in San Antonio! This is also a great opportunity for your family to learn more about another culture and build relationships with people from other countries. (And maybe even pick up a few words of Japanese!)

Interested families need to be able to host for at least one semester (fall or spring 2019-2020), but preferably, the full academic year. A monthly stipend is provided to help offset costs. 

If you or someone you know is interested in hosting, please email Ms. Marisa Calder, International Program Coordinator. Ms. Calder, will also schedule a meeting to discuss more of the details or discuss any questions you might have over the phone!

Thank you for your continuing support of international programs at IWHS!
