BELLINGHAM – Western Washington University’s Extended Education Youth Programs is seeking 20 households to provide a home for students from Wooshin High School in South Korea for four weeks this winter; approximate dates are Feb. 2 to March 2.
Each host family can house one to two students; room and board will be compensated by the program. Wooshin High School students will shadow a local student at Bellingham, Sehome or Squalicum High Schools for those four weeks.
Wooshin has participated in Western’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) youth program for the past two summers and would like to enhance the summer program with a winter immersion opportunity for its high school students.
By allowing students to stay in their homes, families provide a rich experience for them to participate as a family member and gain insight into another culture.
Interested families can call now through the Dec. 31 deadline.
