Hosts Needed for Korean Summer Program

Through Buffalo’s sister city cooperation with Yeongcheon, Korea, SUNY Buffalo State is pleased to host 20 Korean students on campus for our American Language and Culture Summer Program. An important part of this program is providing our guests with American home stays. Through these stays, students are exposed to American home life, experience American culture firsthand, and have an authentic opportunity to practice their spoken English. 

Hosts will provide two meals (Saturday night and Sunday morning), one outing that showcases some aspect of Western New York/American culture, a single bed (students can share a room but not a bed), and transportation to and from Buffalo State. 

Pickup is planned for Saturday, July 27, at 2:00 p.m. in Cleveland Circle. Drop-off is planned for Sunday, July 28, at noon in Cleveland Circle.

To help defray the costs associated with hosting a student, hosts will be offered a stipend of $50 per student.

Please contact Elizabeth Summers, (717) 439-5437, with questions or to become a host.
