hosting1Information Session for New & Interested Homestay Hosts

Are you a new FIUTS host? Have you hosted once or twice before but want to know more about all the different homestay programs and meet the staff? Or do you have friends who you've been trying to convince to sign up to host who would like to learn more details?

We'll be hosting an Information Session for new and interested hosts on Wednesday, July 9 from 6:00-7:00 PM in the FIUTS office, HUB 206 on the University of Washington campus (click here for directions).

Parking and refreshments will be provided - when you enter campus, tell the attendant at the gatehouse that you are there for the "Homestay Information Session" and you will be able to park free of charge. All are welcome, no matter what your level of hosting experience is! This is an opportunity to meet staff, visit the office, and connect with other new and experienced hosts. Bring your questions!

RSVP to Ellen if possible (but also feel free to just show up).
