Iksan Summer Cultural Exchange Program 2017

Fri, 06/02/2017 - 8:26am

HCPSS has hosted middle school students from the Iksan School District of South Korea for nine years.  This summer marks the 10th anniversary of the program.  20 middle school students, who have been selected through an arduous process, will arrive on Sunday, July 9th and will depart on Saturday, July 29, 2017. They are in need of 10 host families to house two students per home.  The host parent’s obligations would be daily drop off at 8:30am and pick up at 5pm at Patapsco Middle School.  In addition they need to pack lunches for the students every school day.  The students will tour DC the first weekend and will spend the second weekend with the host families.  They will then depart Saturday morning for a tour of the NY and New England.

Each host family will receive a stipend of $900 per student.  Attached is the application.

The Iksan students look forward to living in an American home to experience US culture.  The coordinator of the program is Mr. Sung Jung and he can be reached at ppasha@yahoo.com.

Thank you.
