Welcome an international student in your home!
Hello, my name is Pamela Weiler, Conwell-Egan Catholic High School Homestay Coordinator of Twinn Palms, Inc. We are a leading educational homestay service agency for students from China who study in private high schools throughout the U.S.. We are searching for families in our community who are willing to open their homes to our students and become their host family for the school year and for years to come.
Our students are highly motivated, talented, and eager to obtain a top level education at Conwell-Egan Catholic High School. By living with an American host family, the students are able to learn and grow in a nurturing environment. This is a chance for the host family to introduce American culture to our Chinese students, and help provide a smooth transition into this foreign environment. We also hope this will bring you and your family a rich experience learning about Chinese culture as well. This is truly a wonderful and unique opportunity to enjoy a multicultural experience in your home.
Twinn Palms has developed a comprehensive program to assist families as they integrate Chinese students into their families’ daily life. In addition to ongoing communication and periodic visitations, we also provide a monthly stipend of $1,200 per month, per student (two student max.) This stipend will help cover the cost for food, transportation, and any additional expenses associated with caring for our students. We provide support to our host families, our students and their parents to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience for all. While school is assisting us in promoting this opportunity to the school community, Twinn Palms assumes all responsibilities for recruiting, placement, and communication between our host families and students.
We thank you for taking the time to consider this opportunity. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a host family, please contact me. At that time we can discuss the program in greater detail. I look forward to speaking with you!
