Area host families sought for two exchange students

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

The STS Foundation, a non-profit student exchange organization, is looking for host families in the Carson City area for two students.

International high school exchange students are coming to study in the Carson City area during the 2011-12 school year. These students will integrate themselves into a local family with the goal of experiencing American culture as an American high school student does. In turn they will provide insight into their own culture.

STS Foundation has been facilitating these relationships for the past 20 years and looks forward to finding new host families. Two of the students STS is looking for host families in the area for this year are Lilian and Janne. Lilian is a 16-year-old girl from a small town in Switzerland who loves sports. She has been participating in athletics for 7 years and has recently starting rowing. She has been a Girl Scout for 7 years and has been a leader for younger girls. She also enjoys cooking, skiing and listening to music.

Janne is a 17-year old boy from Finland who considers himself athletic and friendly. He loves playing soccer and has played for 9 years. He also is a very good guitar player and enjoys swimming, bowling and playing pool. They are both excellent students and will have their own spending money and health insurance.

The host family provides a separate bed, family meals and a safe environment. If your family is interested in being a host family call Lillian Clemente at 1-800-522-4678 or send an email to lillian@stsfoundation.org. For more information visit http://www.stsfoundation.org.
