Dear Friends from BCC,
Besides cultivating crops, I also believe in cultivating international understanding and friendship. That is why I became a local coordinator for PAX, foreign student placement program.
Host families can be married couples with kids or not, singles, empty-nesters…and they would be enrolled in Burlington HS.
I am happy to answer any other questions you may have.
