Are you interested in gaining international experience? Do you like helping young people learn and grow? Would you like to share your home and that empty spare bedroom?
ABODE Homestays (ABODE) is currently looking for home-stay hosts for international students who will begin studying at Shoreline Community College this fall. 

In home stays, the host provides the student with a private, furnished bedroom and three meals a day, often a self-serve breakfast and lunch and then dinner prepared by the host most nights of the week. Hosts are not required to provide transportation to school as students will use public transportation.  The host receives a monthly stipend of $625 as compensation for the costs of hosting a student.
Young families, single parents, retired couples and single people from a variety of ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds are eligible to host students if they meet the home-stay requirements. 
Students will be arriving in mid-September and applications must be received by ABODE at least one month before placement.  The time allows the organization to find the best matched homes for the students.  Hosts are generally informed of their student two to four weeks ahead of arrival. 
A successful host is interested in other cultures, likes to share the American experience and would enjoy having an international student in their home.

For more information, check the website or contact ABODE Homestays by email or phone 206-527-8654.
