is looking for local families to host international students (and their adult group leaders) for two- or three-week terms during June, July, and August.
students are between the ages of 14 and 17. They will be
attending school at Marymount University in Rancho Palos Verdes at an English immersion summer camp/school
on Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Education First will transport the students via private vans to and
from school and the host's home.
The program dates are as follows:
Session 1A: June 13 – July 9 (Students from France, Italy, and Finland)

Session 2A: July 11 – July 30 (Students from France, China, and Spain)
Session 2B: July 18 – August 6 (Students from Hong Kong, Germany, and Italy)
families will receive a $110 per week stipend. They are responsible for
providing their student or adult guest with three meals per day (packed lunches on school days). On the weekends,
students can either do activities with the family, or participate in
Education First Activities.
