Local families invited to host an exchange student

World Heritage Student Exchange Program, a highly respected, nonprofit, 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 2013-2014 academic school year. 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 2013-2014 school year begins and each World Heritage student is fully insured, brings his/her own personal spending money and expects to bear his/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 or helping others become host families, call Area Coordinator Courtney Wade at 866-939-4111 or email Courtney@World-Heritage.org. You can also visit www.whhosts.com for more information.
