Welcome a student from Kashiwa, Japan into your home.


Host Family

We will be hosting the Kashiwa delegation (eight students and one adult leader) in August. Host families are needed in Torrance to host one exchange student for 10 to 12 days.

The families of students who are selected to go to Kashiwa are required to host. Additional families are also needed since each Kashiwa guest needs two host families during their visit.

All families are welcome to apply. Host families are screened by TSCA members prior to selection.

Daytime activities, one weekend, and some night activities are scheduled by TSCA. Each host family has some evenings and one weekend to plan family activities with their guest.
