Amity Aunt/Uncle Description

Interested in supporting the Amity program in another way?  We also solicit volunteers to be an Aunt/Uncle family.

The aunt/uncle family is an extension of the host family and supports both the intern and their host family throughout the intern’s stay. This is most successfully achieved when the aunt/uncle family takes the initiative to reach out and communicate frequently with both parties. This effort allows families to build lasting connections with one another and brings a sense of community to the intern. The more involved the aunt/uncle family is with the intern the greater the opportunity is for language learning, cultural exchange and lasting relationships for all.
