Host families are needed in Alameda for 17 more students visiting from Spain this summer. A total of 25 students, ranging in age from 13 to 18, will arrive on Monday, June 30, and depart on Monday, July 28.

They are coming through the EMY organization, located in northern Spain. The students will participate in three excursions each week from historical, cultural and entertainment sites including Alcatraz, I Fly, Great America, an Oakland A’s game and more.

The students come with their own spending money and with full insurance. All of the students have studied English and are coming to experience the American lifestyle as well as improve their English.

Host families are asked to provide the student with a bed as well as the cultural exchange. If you cannot travel the world this summer, consider letting the world come to you. For more information or to participate in this cultural experience, contact Jan Garcia at 749-7061 or at garciapuccini@aol.com.
