Opportunity: Host a Japanese intern for 1 to 3 weeks in May (LEX America)
*Hosting Opportunity* LEX America, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization which provides community-based multilingual immersion language programs is seeking host families for our next intern. Please let us know if you might be interested in welcoming a young grandpa from Japan into your home for one to three weeks in May!!
Individuals and families who have hosted LEX interns from Japan or Mexico have made wonderful friendships and enjoyed learning about other countries and viewing their own country and culture through fresh eyes. Interns are flexible and expect to join in your normal routine – they want to experience ordinary daily life in the U.S.
Interns will spend approximately three days each week working in the LEX office and participating in our language clubs in North Cambridge, so access to public transportation is helpful. If the host family is available on other weekdays, the intern may join you in your regular activities, and if you are not available, the intern will be independent on those days.
Interns are all carefully selected members of the LEX organization in Japan or Mexico. They are 18 or older, and typically have previous experience with homestay travel. Their *English* level may vary from beginner to fluent. They all have good *communication* skills, and are curious, kind, flexible, and open-minded.
Hosts may be individuals or families of any shape or size who wish to open their home to a visitor. Hosts are volunteers and will receive a small stipend to help cover meals the intern eats at home.
