My name is Charlotte Boley, I work for a non-profit organization that places foreign exchange student with American families.

As I have a student from Germany who is a big table tennis player I'm trying to reach out to potential host families who have the same passion for table tennis as he does. therefore I was wondering if I could post on your forum to following message?

Please let me know. I would appreciate any help I can get, thanks!


I'm the local coordinator for CCI Greenheart here in Tucson and my job is to find a family for our students. I'm also responsible for enrolling them to their local high school, and I will be following up on everybody (students and families) during the whole stay of the student.


I have a student, Frederik, from Germany who is an absolute fan of tennis table. he practices 3 or 4 times a week and also participates in competitions.

I'm looking to find him a host family who shares his passion.

If you are interested in hosting, or maybe know someone who might be, and would like to hear more about possibly hosting let me know as soon as possible.


You can see a bellow a few more info about what it means to be a host family


Thank you very much and I hope I'll hear back :)

Here is what is expected from the host family


The health and safety of each student is our highest priority and so we

ask our host families to abide by regulations of the U.S. Department of

State, as well as, provide:


•           Open communication, encouragement, patience and sound advice

•           A separate bed, which can be in a shared room

•           A quiet place to study

•           Three daily meals

•           Local transportation (students are not permitted to drive while on the program)

•           Treatment as a member of the family, which may include household rules, responsibilities and privileges.


•           Speak English

•           Bring their own spending money

•           Have their own medical and accident insurance

Ask your student to prepare a short video of him playing table tennis, upload it to youtube and post the link here.
