Education First Homestay Programs is arranging for 34 Chinese students and their chaperons to visit Redmond between July 15 and Aug. 5 and the organization still needs to place 10 students and their chaperons within the next couple of weeks.

Education First has a monetary incentive (referral) award of $25 for new host families. The referral fee could be kept or given to any organization of their choosing.

Host families may be eligible to receive a $250 discount or rebate from their participation in other Education First programs: Smithsonian Student Travel, Tours for Girl Scouts, Educational Tours and College Study Tours.

Education First will also give 15 hours per week of community hours/credit to the hosting “students.”
