Have you considered hosting one of Lincoln Academy’s international students during a school vacation, but been unable to commit to an over-night visit? We are currently seeking volunteers to invite one or more students to join their family for Thanksgiving dinner. This is a great opportunity to connect with some of the more than 70 international teens studying at LA. These students come from more than 16 countries around the globe and they are excited to learn more about our community and practice their language skills.
Shuyu Pang is a junior from TianJin, China. “I want to experience Thanksgiving with a family here because I like to make a lot of friends and practice my English and enjoy Thanksgiving,” says Shuyu. “In China we don’t have Thanksgiving and we don’t know what people do to celebrate it.”
We are also looking for host families for the following school vacations:
- December Break: December 21 – January 5, 2020
- February Break: February 15 – February 23, 2020
- April Break: April 18 – April 26, 2020
