This is an amazing opportunity to host a group of students from Ukraine. This is their first visit to America and they are coming to Amarillo, TX! These students come from families who have been involved in the recent war. We will give them a chance to get away, have some fun and learn about America and Texas! With your help we will give them a great educational, cultural and good ole Texan experience!
These students will be placed with host families for a two week stay. They love to meet our families and get to know the way of life here in America. They will also have a schedule of activities to keep them busy while their host families work or take care of their daily lives. They will be here in Amarillo through Sept. 10th. If you are interested in hosting for their whole visit this is also available and greatly appreciated. There will be an informational meeting with all the details scheduled soon.
If you or your family would like to be a host or if you would like to host the group for an activity, please let me know. It's a life changing experience for everyone. The people who have been involved in the past have fallen in love with these students and some have kept in touch over the years. We may not be able to travel across the world to make a difference in someone's life. But we can embrace them with open arms and make a change in their world for a two week period that will last a lifetime!
