The Japan-America Society of Georgia is looking for families to host business students in Atlanta here on an exchange program from Obirin University in Tokyo. Students in the course spend eight weeks in intensive English language classes at Georgia Tech and Georgia State University followed by another two months of working with local businesses. For a monthly stipend of $800, host families agree to provide two meals a day, transportation, support and a private bedroom with a desk and Wi-Fi.
