Somers schools have partnered with the World Education Program to bring a group of high school students from Italy to the area for a three-week cultural exchange in July.
The district still needs some families to host the teens, although host families don’t need to live in Somers to participate.
The summer program includes courses at one of the Somers schools and day trips to New York City and other cultural destinations. Host families are asked to furnish space in their home so the Italian students can see what American life is like.
For information on the program or to apply to become a host, email Rachel Greenburg at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information on the exchange program, visit www.wep-usa.org
