CHIP A, Host Dad in San Luis Obispo, CA

It has been so awesome to watch Lena and Sarah explore California and soak it all in. They really do become like part of your family. Hosting is a challenging and rewarding experience. You don't just learn about a new culture, you learn a lot about yourself."

DARLENE R, Host Mom in San Juan Capistrano, CA

Because Changyu (James) is a photographer aficionado, we enjoy seeing all the pictures he is taking.  He is also taking pictures of the school's football team. It is nice that he and Kennedy, our other international student, are doing things together, like getting ice cream after dinner, or just sitting in the front yard with our dog enjoying the outside."
