Host a foreign exchange student, learn all about a new culture

 

March 20, 2012



Local host families are needed to host a High School student for the 2012-13 school year at Lake Stevens, Granite Falls, and the Snohomish High Schools.

Your family will foster relationships between countries and make lifelong friends with people worldwide. We have scholarship students from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and South America.

The students have their own medical insurance and spending money and speak good English.

Host families need to have a bed for the student and give them two meals a day. A host family can be a single parent with children of any age, a couple with children of any age, a couple with no children, or empty nesters, anyone who wants to enrich their lives some more and give a foreign student the experience of living in America with an American family.

The students are screened in their home country. They are eagerly waiting to hear news of their host family.

Due to school deadlines host families need to commit by mid-March.

Please help us make a difference in the world. Make a students dream come true.

Call Charla at 360-659-3603 for more specific information on students and more information about hosting.
