Student exchange group seeks homes to host foreign students
The AFS Intercultural Programs is seeking families to host high school exchange students in local homes for an academic year or six months. Students come from over 40 countries and represent diverse backgrounds.
There is also an opportunity to host students from the Youth Exchange and Study Program, which was initiated by the U.S. Department of State to build bridges of understanding between Americans and people in countries with significant Muslim populations.
Local AFS volunteers enroll students in high school and support students and their families to help both gain the most from their experience. Anyone interested in learning more about hosting or volunteering with AFS may visit http://www.afs.org/usa/hostfamily or call 1-800-AFS-INFO.
