World Heritage Student Exchange Program, a 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 2013-2014 academic school year. Host families provide room, board, and guidance for teenagers 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.
Those interested in opening their homes and sharing their family lives with a young person from abroad or helping others become host families can call Area Coordinator Courtney Wade at 866-939-4111, or e-mail her at Courtney@World-Heritage.org.
