Brother Rice is proud to be a Gphomestay school. We are pleased to present the families and alumni from our school community with the opportunity to get involved in this amazing, cross-cultural experience
Do you recognize the value in cross-cultural education? Here at Brother Rice, we do! Start thinking globally by hosting an international student attending our schools in your home.
Brother Rice supports international programs with Gphomestay and is in need of qualified host families to provide a safe and nurturing home environment for international students from China who will be attending our school during the 2015-2016 academic school year. If you live within a 30 minute commute to and from our campus and are able to provide daily transportation, you are eligible to apply.
Gphomestay will provide host families with dedicated support staff, host family training, and 24-7 emergency support throughout the school year, as well as regular group activities for you and the student to share with other participating families.
The students have their own health insurance and spending money. The host family should speak English at home, ensure that the student eats 3 nutritious meals per day, and provide a private bedroom for the student’s sole use. Being able to involve the student in family events and activities is a big plus. Participating families will receive a stipend of $1,000 per month.
We ask our hosts to commit to the 10 month academic school year.
