    Forte is looking for host families for students from China for the 2011-12 school year. Forte International Exchange Association (FIEA) is a non-profit high school foreign exchange program.These students will arrive in late July or early August to attend schools in your community.  The students are 15-18 years of age, have their own spending money and insurance, and are looking to spend a year in America learning English and our American culture.

     

    Host families are expected to provide a loving and caring environment, while providing support, guidance and love to the student. Families who have finished hosting always rave about what a rewarding experience it has been for everyone in the family. From the lasting bonds that have formed to experiencing another country’s culture in your own home, most families always gain cultural awareness from their exchange student.

     

    For more information and to view students’ profiles, visit the FIEA website: www.forteexchange.org

    FCC is once again a key partner organization of the Indianapolis Chinese Festival.  The 2011 festival is in its fourth year that continues to grow stronger each year.  It will be held on September 10th from noon to 7 pm at Military Park.  FCC’s primary responsibility is for the Family & Kids area of the festival.  In the summer, we will be seeking a core planning group to organize our activities for that day, as well as many volunteers to help staff the various planned activities.  The craft area was a huge hit at last year’s festival.

    The festival has many, many more components where FCC families can share their talents.  Here is a quick list of the key committees.

    • Sponsors-currently underway to seek business sponsor support.  Is this something that your business would like to be a part of?
    • Facilities-Confucius Institute @ IUPUI is the lead partner organization and this task deals with all logistics with the park space.
    •  Treasurer-The Confucius Institute is the fiscal agent for the festival
    •  Marketing, media and promotion-Asian American Times is taking the lead on this, with support from Bethann Buddenbaum.  If you have suggestions on where the event could be promoted, let us know.
    • Stage performances-lead partner is Chinese Performing Arts and will be a great series of performances
    • Ping Pong tournament-Nathan Weddle handles everything Ping Pong.  This event was popular last year and we expect it will be again.
    • Vendors-the lead partner organization is ICCCI, but this task is significant.  Each of the following could be its own committee.
    • Food-the committee is exploring making a limited number of traditional Chinese dishes.  However, additional food vendors will be needed to participate in the festival.  Do you have suggestions for this part of the festival or would be willing to help organize and plan this aspect of the festival?  Food is key at any festival!
    • Exhibitors-the committee will soon be seeking groups interested in having an exhibit and interacting with the attendees to the festival.  This may be your business. 
    • Merchandise-the committee will be seeking vendors interested in selling Chinese cultural items and other items at the festival.  This is an area of the festival can has great potential to grow.  Are you willing to be a part of this committee?  They are beginning their work now.
    • Education and Culture-Lilly’s Chinese Cultural Network is the lead partner organization.
    • Family & Kids-FCC Indiana.  Again we will seek out a small planning group in the summer and will need volunteers to help out.  More details to come.

    We all are working to make the Chinese Festival a tradition here in Indianapolis.  Each of these committees needs help and we know there are FCC members that may have time, talent and treasure to help with this event.  If there is a committee that you are interested in being involved with, please let Mandy or Bethann know and we’ll connect you to the right person.
