Happy Holidays!

I am a Local Coordinator for an organization called World Learning that brings international students to Dallas under a scholarship program via the U.S. Department of State. We currently are in need of a host family for our scholarship participant from Azerbaijan, Javid(17) who is studying at Highland Park High School this Spring semester. The time frame would be from Jan 5 - June 16 (tentative but not later than). If you feel you are a family who would love to experience another culture during this timeframe, we are looking for a family like you! 

Javid (17) from Azerbaijan
-Javid is a sports lover, who enjoys basketball, frisbee, and baseball. He looks forward to learning more about American Culture, and becoming a part of your family!

*Please note that Host Families serve on a volunteer basis.
