Home Visit Hosts wanted (Tokyo)

Gyroscorp is a private Japanese company that helps people who were born and raised in Japan to become global-minded individuals. The company is planning to launch a new cultural program for Japanese middle schools and high schools in Tokyo. The program will be called the “Tokyo Home Visit Program”. This program will enable young students, who only know about the Japanese society, to enter a different living environment and to learn how to socialize with non-Japanese people. In order to launch this program, we are looking for a dozen host families who are willing to help Japanese students develop their global awareness skills.

1. Program Details: A group of Protected content will visit an authentic Western-style home in Tokyo. The host will serve a Western-style lunch and will visit with the students for 3 hours. The host will encourage students to speak and interact in English.
Hosts will be reasonably compensated for their time and expense.
20,000 yen to 26,000 yen depending on the number of visitors

2. Information for Host Families:
a) You are eligible to be a host family if you:
o Are a non-Japanese family.
o Reside in an authentic Western-style home in Tokyo.
o Use English in daily conversation at home. (We prefer if all members of your family are native English speakers.)
b) We will register Protected content families.

3. Timeline for the Tokyo Home Visit Program:
o Enrollment
– by June 30th we will enroll Protected content families.
o Marketing – in July we will begin our marketing campaign through travel agents.
o We aim to offer home visit programs once a month, beginning in October Protected content .

If you are interested, please contact me with your name, address and the photo of your residence. I will arrange a video interview after that.
