Education First


NEW HOUSE. WELL THERE’S A FANTASTIC PROGRAM THAT HELPS STUDENTS AROUND THE WORLD. BUT IT NEEDS A LITTLE HELP TOO. EDUCATIONAL FIRST. EDGE CASUAL HOMESTEAD PROGRAM. IT’S ALL ABOUT OPENING YOUR HOME TO THE WORLD. AND THEY’RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN GET INVOLVED HERE BECAUSE WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF A CRUNCH TIME. AND YOU HOSTED BEFORE AND YOU’RE PART OF THIS TEAM. WHAT WAS THAT EXPERIENCE LIKE HOSTING FOR YOU. IT WAS AMAZING. I STARTED THREE YEARS AGO JUST AS A HOST FAMILY. I TOOK IN SIX STUDENTS IN THE THREE YEAR PERIOD. SO WE START OUT WITH A FRENCH STUDENT WHO REVISITED US LAST SUMMER AND AMAZING. AFTER HIS VISIT HE STAYED WITH US FOR THREE WEEKS. MY SON WENT BACK TO FRANCE AND SPENT TIME WITH HIS FAMILY. SO THE CONNECTION IS REAL AND IT’S ONLY FOR A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME. MAYBE TWO TO FOUR WEEKS. IT’S THREE TO FOUR WEEKS AND WE’RE URGING FAMILIES TO COME OUT AND STEP UP AND HOST A STUDENT WITH US. WE STILL HAVE ABOUT 50 BESIDE THAT WE’RE LOOKING TO PLACE IN HOMES AND WE REALLY NEED YOUR HELP. IT’S AN EASY PROGRAM. WE DO MOST OF THE WORK FOR YOU. WE TAKE THEM TO DISNEY LAND. WE TAKE THEM TO SAN FRANCISCO AND THEY SEE THE WORLD. SO. THAT’S AN AMAZING LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE NOT JUST FOR THE STUDENT BUT FOR THE HOST AS WELL. IT’S JUST AS EASY AS TEXTING A NUMBER. SUPER EASY. SO IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO GET INVOLVED WITH EF THIS SUMMER COULD YOU TEXT AT HOST TO 916-300-2947. YOU CAN CATCH US ON FACEBOOK. ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS TEXT THAT WORD HOST AND YOU’LL KNOW AND THEN YOU’LL BE ABLE TO CONNECT THEM WITH THE RESOURCES AND GET EVERYTHING GOING BECAUSE IT’S CRUNCH TIME NOW AND IF SOMEONE IS ABLE TO OPEN UP THEIR HOME YOU’RE GOING TO NEED TO GET THE BALL ROLLING AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE. ABSOLUTELY. SO THEY CAN HAVE SOME STABILITY. THAT’S AN OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE AND I THINK IT’S ALWAYS INTERESTING THAT PEOPLE ARE ABLE TO DO THAT TAKING AN A COMPLETE STRANGER INTO YOUR HOME. AND IT’S SUPER EASY BECAUSE IF YOU WORK, WE WILL TAKE CARE AND DO THE WORK FOR YOU. BECAUSE WE HAVE THEM 24 — MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY, ALL DAY. WE HAVE BUS STOPS SET UP ON THE COURSE CENTERS IN SOUTH SACRAMENTO SO WE MAKE IT REALLY EASY. WE CAN WORK ON HELPING WITH TRANSPORT AND CAR POOLING. RIGHT. NOW WHAT ABOUT FOR LIKE LANGUAGE BARRIERS. WHAT DO YOU DO FOR THAT? DO YOU PROVIDE TRANSLATORS? SO THEY ACTUALLY COME WITH THEIR OWN CHAPERONS FROM THEIR OWN COUNTRY. SO THEY’RE HERE WITH THEIR CHAPERON FROM THEIR COUNTRY. MOST OF THESE KIDS DO SPEAK ENGLISH. THEY’RE HIGH SCHOOL AGED KIDS. THEY’VE HAD ENGLISH LANGUAGE TRAINING ALREADY. SO USUALLY IT’S PRETTY EASY. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS PICK UP YOUR PHONE AND TEXT THE WORD HOST. CHRISTA ADRIENNE AND EVERYONE.
