If you would like to rent a room or support a visiting student this summer, please fill out the form on the J-1 forms page and submit it to ourkittery and it will be forwarded to the organizations that sponsor these students. As always your information is not public and will only be forwarded to the groups looking for housing for students.
An organizational meeting of the Seacoast J-1 Hospitality Coalition was held at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 19, in the Council Chambers at Kittery Town Hall.
The intent was to follow up on work begun last summer with a goal of creating a welcoming and appropriate environment for the more than 40 foreign students who will be working in Kittery on J-1 visas this summer and fall. Citizens who attended any of the meetings last summer were certainly encouraged to attend on the 19th, as well as any other citizens interested in becoming involved as goodwill ambassadors for our community.
Representatives from agencies placing students in Kittery attended along with representatives of employing companies. The hope was to work as a team for the safety, security and pleasure of all.
In the next few days, ourkittery will add a page and advertise it here. This page will be a place that local people businesses and residents as well can go to get information and share information. Those who have rooms to rent or share are encouraged to check here under the J1 Coalition page.
There will be contact information, rules, maps and a contact form for those wishing to assist.
