Hosts sought for exchange students

Published: Wednesday, March 27, 2013 at 11:46 AM.

 

World Heritage Student Exchange Program, a highly respected, non-profit, public-benefit organization, is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from Scandinavia, France, Germany, Italy, Thailand, China, South Korea, and the former Soviet Republics.

Students are already awaiting word on their host families for the 2013-14 academic school year (or semester). Host families provide room, board, and guidance for a teenager living thousands of miles from home. Couples, single parents, and families with or without children in the home are all encouraged to apply.

The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before the 2013-14 school year begins and each World Heritage student is fully insured, brings his or her own personal spending money and expects to bear his or her share of household responsibilities, as well as being included in normal family activities and lifestyles. 

If you are interested in opening your home and sharing your family life with a young person from abroad, please call local Area Representative Amy Strout at 281-2092 or 1-800-888-9040 (toll free). Please also visit our website at www.whHosts.com.
