Host families sought for exchange students
World Heritage Student Exchange Program, a non-profit organization, is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from around the world.
Students are awaiting word on who their host family will be for the 2011-12 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 all are encouraged to apply.
The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before school begins in the fall of 2011. 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. The families are expected to included the exchange student in normal family activities and lifestyles.
Students from France, Germany, Thailand, Japan, China, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Italy, the Middle East and the former Soviet Republics are participating in the exchange program.
