HOST A FRENCH STUDENT!
Expand your family for two weeks -- make a friend for life!
 
Students from our Sister City of Brest, France will visit Denver from 
April 12 - 24.

We're looking for families with high school-aged teens who would like to homestay a student for two weeks!

In return, your family will experience the joy of an international sibling while sharing your home, traditions,
and community -- all while learning new and different customs and foods.
Host families are responsible for 
room & board and general parental supervision. 
Visiting students bring their own spending money.
