4-H Foreign Exchange Host Families Needed: Are you interested in learning more about Japanese culture? Would you be interested in hosting a Japanese student or adult chaperone for 4 weeks this summer?
- Program dates: July 22-24 through August 16-18, 2022
- Japanese delegates will be aged 12-18, with a range of English language abilities. Host family receives no stipend to host a delegate. To host a delegate, a family must have a child who is 9+ years old. Families will be matched with a delegate of the same gender who is within 3 years of the host youth’s age. Families without youth can host adult chaperones. Delegates are here to experience every day American life. No special activities need to be planned and Virginia 4-H will provide a host family orientation.
