Learn about Chinese culture this summer!

Youth For Understanding USA, one of the oldest and most respected international exchange orgs in the US, welcomes students to the DC/Northern VA/MD area from our partner offices abroad. In July, 2014 we have family hosting opportunities for a short term three week program for students from China. Short term hosting can be a fun way to connect with another culture ~ and perhaps, learn a bit of Mandarin language as well! The students range in age from 14-17, and are conversant in English. LEARN MORE about this summer hosting opportunity, or please pass this message to another family that might be interested!
