Exchange Student Looking for Host Family

Newton South Families–this is your chance to host an international student! The Visiting International Student program is hosted at Newton South High School and provides important resources for the district.

Currently, we need a host family to host Wenjie “Jim” from China. Jim is a senior at NSHS. He is friendly and has many interests. He likes badmitton and is learning to play the ukelele. Jim lived and went to school in Mississippi last year. His host family from Mississippi formed a strong bond with him and have invited him to spend the winter holiday with them. Jim is hoping he can live with a family that lives in the Newton South area. He would like to participate in family activities and also be able to spend time with his friends.

Host families are paid a monthly stipend of $800.00 per month and received 24 hour support through the students stay in the USA. If you would like to learn more about being a host parent, you can contact Claudette Rowe from Educatius International at or 508-246-7028.
