Host families are needed in Torrance each August to host the students and adult leader from Kashiwa. Each family hosts an exchange student for ten to twelve 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.
An orientation meeting is held for all host families in late June or early July.
Please feel free to fill out our 2019 Host Family Interest Form.
