Host families are needed for a group of Spanish students who will be spending three and a half weeks in southern Vermont this summer to improve their English and experience American family life. These boys and girls, who range in age from 15 to 17, arrive June 27 and depart on July 22.

They are all from the Basque region of Spain and will come with their own spending money and medical insurance.

Host families must provide a home environment for the student, as well as meals. It’s fine for a student to share a room with a host sibling. Hosts must also provide transportation to a meeting spot on the two days there are field trips, to Boston and Six Flags.

Interested families should call Jill Stahl Tyler at 802-254-2879 or email jill@globalcow.com. Complete information — including student applications — is at www.globalcow.com/step.
