Host families sought for exchange students

World Heritage is seeking local families to host high school students from France, Germany, Thailand, Japan, Russia, China, Switzerland, Denmar, and Italy for the 2006-2007 academic school year.

Host families provide room, board, and guidance for a teenager living thousands of miles from home. Students are screened and selected based on academic performance, English proficiency, teacher recommendations, and personal interviews. Couples, single parents, and families with or without children are encouraged to apply. Students will arrive shortly before school begins in the fall, are fully insured, brings their own personal spending money, and expects to bear their share of household responsibilities.
