Student Hosting

Dear CAFAM members,

The Council on International Educational Exchange is hosting an English Language and American Culture Program for international high school students in Portland this summer. This three week program from July 18-August 8 includes English language and American culture classes, local excursions and activities around Maine, and a trip to Boston to visit historical sites. If you would like to learn more about the high school abroad opportunities CIEE offers, please visit

CIEE is seeking local families to host a short-term exchange student. Students will be coming to the program from China, India, South Korea and Afghanistan. Responsibilities of the host family will include providing breakfast and dinner, transportation to and from classes at Cheverus High School in Portland, willingness to assist with homework and enhance language learning, and eagerness to welcome the student into their family. A small stipend will be provided to help offset costs.

Please respond by email to or phone at 207-553-4121.
