Up with People is a non-profit global education program that takes students around the globe on a 6-month, multi-continent tour. They travel to a new destination each week where they enjoy a true cultural immersion experience by living with host families and doing community service projects. From September 12th-19th Up with People is bringing 100 young international volunteers to Aurora! They group is currently looking for host families to open their homes to these volunteers to help them have a true cultural immersion experience.
As a host family Up With People asks you to provide the following for your guest(s) during their visit:
- A place to sleep
- Some meals (breakfast and dinner)
- Limited transportation
- An overall safe and comfortable atmosphere to promote the sharing of customs and cultures
