Whittier is looking for host families for next year’s Amity intern. The Amity intern comes from a Spanish-speaking country and supports Whittier’s world language program. Host families provide a room and meals for either the first or second half of the school year. Host families gain an international connection plus an opportunity to learn new customs and practice Spanish skills. Find more information at the link or contact Yung Lu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
