Takamatsu Student Ambassador program looking for host families | Arts & Culture
Saint Petersburg, Florida -- Four teenage students (three young women, one young man) from Takamatsu, Japan will visit St. Petersburg as part of an international student ambassador program and families are invited to share their home and culture for one week this July.
Host families are encouraged to participate in the cultural exchange by including their Japanese guest in routine tasks like grocery shopping or planned trips to area museums, the beach, theme parks and going to the mall.
During their stay, Japanese student ambassadors and their host families are invited to meet city officials at a City Council meeting and participate in a potluck Thanksgiving celebration.
Applications are now being accepted from St. Petersburg families to host an exchange student from our Sister City of Takamatsu, either the week July 20 to 25, or July 26 to August 2, 2012.
Applications must be postmarked by Friday, June 29.
Information on the Student Ambassador Host Family program is available in the Homestay Exchange Guide and Host Family application, available by calling the Arts and International Relations office at 727-893-7465 or online at www.stpete.org/hostfamily
