Partnership with Spiral International
Host Families and Peer Mentors Needed Summer 2020
NMHS has welcomed groups of 30 students from China each summer since 2012. Students explore American culture and life in Vermont in a variety of ways. The program provides project based learrning and cultural exploration on Vermont based themes
Peer mentors help the Chinese students deepen their understanding of American life and build strong friendships between Vermont and China that last long beyond the two week program.
Another strength is the experience Spiral students have with their American host families. Host families welcome students into their homes and share their love of Vermont. Families take students hiking, swimming, boating, bowling and biking. They visit area attractions, attend baseball games, help tend vegetable and flower gardens, and experience what Vermont families do in the summer.
If you are interested in becoming a peer mentor or hosting two of our students this summer, please contact Michele Tofel Murray for more information. firstname.lastname@example.org.
