Seeking Host Families in Astoria, Bend, Portland and Mount Hood for mid-September 2016

Oregon Partners of the Americas is hosting a group of visitors from Costa Rica for the month of September in Oregon.  The goal of this program is to introduce both partners to the culture of the other, through language, food, shared housing and experiences. We find that lasting, friendly, relationships occur in a more natural manner this way: new friends from another land become like family. This program is NOT for those seeking an inexpensive vacation but, rather, those that seek to share the wonders of each country, and the willingness to become ambassadors of both.

We are seeking new Host Families in all four host cities for the Costa Rican Partners who will be arriving on the 8th of September.  We are trying a new system called to help recruit and organize our upcoming SignUps of Host Families.
