The Faribault Rotary Club is currently looking for 6 host families that are interested in hosting a student in their home for 3-4 months during the upcoming school year 2022-2023. The student arrives in mid to late August. The first host family hosts the student in their home once they arrive through Thanksgiving. After Thanksgiving, the student moves to their second host family. The student stays with the second host family through spring break. The third host family will host the student until about the student returns to their home country in mid-June. A host family can consist of any of the following: a 2-parent household with kids at home, a 1-parent household with kids, a retired couple, or even a widow(er).
The host family is asked to provide a bed and a desk for the student. The student can share a bedroom with another child if necessary. The Rotary club pays for their school lunches and school activities. We are looking for host families for a 16-year-old female from Germany and a 17-year-old male from Thailand. Our German female has studied English for 6 years and likes all sports, including tennis and skiing. Our male from Thailand has studied English for 9 years and likes basketball. If you are interested in hosting a student in your home, please contact Lisa Humfeld-Wilson at or 507-330-0108 to learn more.
