I have just received word that yet another group of deserving kids from Ukraine will be seeking host families for several weeks this summer!
Photos will follow soon!
The children range from 6-15 years old.They are selected on the basis of good behavior and academic performance.
This is my 10th season( fifth year we have winter and summer groups) as a volunteer coordinator and I can not begin to tell you how my involvement in this work has enriched my life and that of my family!!

I will be FINALLY moving into my new ( wonderfully old ) house in Kingston at the end of June. A translator will be staying with me and will be on call 24/7 should any language issues arise

As a group we will meet together at least once a week for activities - state park visits, amusement parks, pools and back yard get togethers. It should be fun!

I am also looking for fun. inexpensive ideas in NEPA that do not involve language = bowling, swimming and snow tubing come to mind but since this is summer only swimming seems like a viable option. Any suggestions?

The South West Coordinator was unable to volunteer this year so I will be taking care of the eastern part of the US - as far west as Texas.

If you or anyone you know is interested in hosting a child please let me know!

You can PM me if you want. I have a few families in mind that might be interested in doing this. Do you have a link?
