Fall 2014 Host Families Needed for
Two Youths From Mexico
The chair of the Greater Philadelphia Latin American Studies Consortium and Director of Latin American Studies at Villanova needs our help. Temple University is bringing two young-adults from Mexico here this fall semester (late August – mid December) to study English with scholarships. We are looking for a loving family to welcome a student into their home.
Cristo Rey Lutheran Church in El Paso, Texas, sends Dr. San Juana Mendoza, M.D. across the border to Juarez, Mexico, daily. She runs a free medical clinic built on the site of a former dump. Many young Mexican volunteers are trained there to promote health in the community. Dr. Mendoza has chosen these two volunteers to study at Temple.
The two students coming here are: Eric Medellin, male, age 23, and Teresa Ambrosi, female, age 21. They need sleeping accommodations and meals but not transportation, from late August to mid December 2014. Sharing your home with them would be a kind act of international friendship.
To volunteer or receive more information, call (610-525-4499) or email Joe Betz(firstname.lastname@example.org).
