Up With People will be performing in North Platte on February 20 & 22nd and they need host families. Please call Collin Shepherd if you are interested in helping them out! 308-530-6862. Here is some information….
Up with People (UWP) relies on the generosity and support of families all over the world. Since 1965, more than 450,000 families around the world have hosted UWP students. Host families are a big part of what makes our program unique and they provide a rich cultural learning opportunity for our participants.

As a host family, you will open your home and heart to provide a safe and welcoming environment for young people from around the world. In return you will form international friendships that can last a lifetime.

Whether you live in an urban flat, rural farmhouse, thatched hut, or suburban townhouse, you can bring the world into your home by hosting an UWP student during their international tour.
UWP host families provide:

A place to sleep
Breakfast and most dinners
Local transportation at the beginning and end of the day, and
A safe and welcoming environment for UWP students to learn
about your family, community and culture….and vice versa!

UWP host families receive:

Two complimentary Up with People show tickets
An opportunity to share customs and culture, and
A potential new friend for life.
