opportunity to host students

We wanted to let you know about an opportunity to host international students:

Global Connections

Imagine learning about a new culture and language and trying the local cuisine all from your home!

The Council for Educational Travel USA (CETUSA) makes that possible through our international student program.

Students come from over 50 different countries, from all walks of life and with varied interests. All students are fluent in English, have a B- grade average and have been screened. They attend school full time and have signed a behavior contract that is enforced by a local coordinator.  Riverton's coordinator is Jennifer Eames who currently has a 7th grader at OHMS and a girl from Hong Kong at RHS.

Riverton High school currently has openings for international students for the 2011-2012 school year. Only 10 students are allowed to enroll as set by Jordan School District. The current school year is the first year in 5 years that RHS has had international students. The teachers are thrilled and loving the program as well as all the all students who have become their friends. The international students are having an amazing time as well.  

The host families this year love it so much they have opted out to host next year so others can have this experience also!  If you feel that this a great opportunity for your family or you would like tons more information contact Jennifer Eames.   801-520-2821 or  You can also visit CETUSA's website  or find them on Facebook!/pages/CETUSA/164337332001?v=wall
