CIEE seeks host families for international students >From the Friends of International Education listserv: The Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) is currently looking for caring and qualified host families for high school students coming to study in the United States. They will arrive in August 2004, and stay in the U.S. for either five or ten months. CIEE is also looking for great individuals to become local coordinators. These people would volunteer their time with local high schools, locate host families and work with foreign students throughout the school year. Even though it is considered a "volunteer" position, a small placement stipend and travel benefits are part of the great benefits of this position!!!

Topics will include the achievements of Islamic societies in science, math and technology as well as art and architecture, and a film series is planned.
