Introduce an international student to the Mt. Tabor Neighborhood (ANDEO)

Invite a teen or college student from France, Spain, Germany, Japan, or China to discover our neighborhood. Local host families are needed for 3 or 4 weeks for students arriving late-June through September.

Host families provide  three meals per day, a comfortable bed (sharing a room with a host sibling of a similar age and the same gender is fine), and  day-to-day interaction. Some students attended language classes and participate in cultural activities during the work week, while others are free to become immersed in their family's summer routine. ANDEO welcomes busy host families and can help you choose the program that best fits your summer schedule.

Established in 1981, ANDEO is a Portland-based nonprofit that welcomes more than 1,500 international students to the Northwest for short-term homestays each year. For more information or to apply to host, please visit www.andeo.org or contact ANDEO at info@andeo.org or 503.274.1776

This year the movie for this annual summertime event is The Adventures of Tin Tin (rated PG). Get there early for pre-movie entertainment from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. – music by “The River City Band.” The movie starts when it get dark enough—sometime after 8 p.m.

August 24 - Southeast Sunday Parkways (7 miles)

Spend a warm summer day walking and rolling around the Southeast Sunday Parkways. Explore Laurelhurst, Colonel Summers and Ivon Parks where you can grab a bite to eat, listen to tunes, and join some activities.
