This week's featured opportunity: Host families needed, Groton area.

Consider hosting an international exchange student for 2.5 weeks this summer. EF EHP is a nonprofit that has been in business since 1965 and they create a wonderful experience for host families as well as for the international students. This is a terrific way to try out the hosting experience for a short amount of time over the summer and to learn about the Chinese culture.
