I am volunteering with an amazing nonprofit organization in our community called EarthCorps. We are currently recruiting homestay families/individuals for the international corps members. Given how close our neighborhood is to Magnuson Park where the corps members do their environmental training during the week, it would be great to find some good homes for them while they are in Seattle!
Please feel free to pass this along to others who might be interested.

HOST AN INTERNATIONAL EARTHCORPS CORPS MEMBER IN YOUR HOME
EarthCorps is now seeking host families or individuals for our international corps members from June – December 2013. Hosts must commit to a minimum of three months.
International corps members are emerging young professionals (ages 22-26) seeking to expand their conservation/environmental skills with practical hands on experience. Corps members are from over 80 countries around the world and are proficient in English. They will be training full-time at EarthCorps.
EarthCorps pays host family a stipend up to $350 monthly to offset food and living expenses. In exchange, host families provide the corps member with their own furnished bedroom and food, as well as help navigating Seattle and understanding customsin the Pacific Northwest. Corps members must be able to reach Magnuson Park by bus within 45 minutes.
