Homestay hosts needed for high school teachers from Madrid

This just in from World Chicago...

World Chicago is seeking homestay hosts for up to 30 bilingual (Spanish/English) high school science teachers from Madrid, Spain June 26-July 23, 2011.  Monday through Friday, the teachers have a full set of classes at Roosevelt University downtown, but most weekends and evenings are free for these teachers to explore Chicago together with their host families.
We ask the homestay hosts to provide:
A separate bedroom for the delegates and access to a private or shared bathroom;
Breakfast and dinner daily; and
Quality time spent with Spanish guests to share experiences/insights about daily life and culture in Chicago and help them practice their English while becoming familiar with American culture!

A stipend will be made available to homestay hosts.

If interested, please contact Marian Reich at (312) 254-1800 x103 or

Karen here: World Chicago, formerly known as the International Visitors Center, has been hosting visitors from every corner of the world for many years. I've participated on their programs as a volunteer and paid project leader and found the organization great to work with. Marian Reich is especially wonderful.
