Summer Institute looking for host families

Wake Forest will be hosting the Benjamin Franklin Transatlantic Fellows Summer Institute (BFTF) for the seventh consecutive year. This is a program funded by the U.S. State Department that focuses on leadership, international relations, social entrepreneurship, and civic engagement to prepare the Fellows for their role as engaged citizens.

The Fellows are 16-18-year-old students who come from 35 different Western, Eastern European, and Eurasian countries, as well as numerous U.S. states. They will be on campus from June 30 to July 27, taking classes, participating in workshops, and volunteering in the community. They also travel to Philadelphia and Washington for a week.

Wake Forest is looking for host families for the 2013 BFTF Fellows for the period of July 12-22. Please see the flier [PDF] and application [PDF] if you are interested in being a host family. Feel free to distribute the information to anyone who may be interested in being involved with the BFTF.
