Host families needed

Eighteen students from Central American and the Caribbean
need hosts for the first year (2012-13) of their two-year educational
commitment at Central Lakes College, Brainerd. The Business Management students
expect to arrive in early August and be enrolled toward Associate in Applied
Science degrees before returning to their homes with new leadership and
organizational skills. The students will be housed
together the second year in apartments near the campus. Nine male and nine female students
ages 18-23 were selected through the federal Scholarships for Education and
Economic Development (SEED) program. Erich Heppner, director of student life at CLC,
asks that families interested in hosting contact him at (218) 855-8260 or email
eheppner@clcmn.edu to discuss considerations for language, space,
transportation, and a monthly stipend.

under-served populations, including women and ethnic/indigenous groups. The
goal is to enable the students to become change agents in their countries’
