Hi folks,
I received the following e mail.

Special Request for Host Families


Wondering if you might be able to pass this along to anyone
(families, teachers, community) you think might be interested
in hosting an exchange student. This is a great cultural
experience not only for the family, but school and community as
well. We are in great need of host families or even temporary
welcome families! Please help us find all of these kids homes!

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in possibly
hosting an exchange student for the 10/11 school year. We have
students 15-18 years old from around the world that will be
arriving in late August for 5 or 10 months. We need host
families for these students. We have students interested in a
variety of activities including all kinds of sports, scouts,
youth groups, art, dance music, reading, math/science, skiing,
baseball, soccer, volleyball, hiking/camping, basketball,
choir, band, drawing and painting.
Without host families, we would not be able to help these
students achieve their American Dream! Host families need only
to provide a bed for the student and meals at home. Students
can share a room with another kid. All other expenses are the
student's responsibility. Host Families can consist of all make-
ups such as single parent families, singles, couples with no
kids, retirees, empty nesters, etc. These students make great
mentors to younger children as well.

Host Families provide the following to host a student:
- A bed for the student (students can share a room)
- Meals at home
- Loving, caring, environment for the student

Students come with the following:
- Ability to speak English at a high school level
- Complete Health Insurance
- Spending money for anything they need including hygiene items, school supplies, clothes, long
distance phone calls, etc)
- Open mind about their American experience

We have students from all over the world including: Brazil,
Japan, Italy, Poland, Denmark, Mongolia, Spain, Belgium,
Germany, France, Turkey, Thailand, Colombia, Korea, Slovakia,
China, Taiwan, Belgium, Mexico, and many more.Your help is
greatly appreciated, as we have several students to place with
good host families! Exchange students can be a positive
influence on your family, school, and community!
If you are interested and would like more information, please
contact me as soon as possible so that we can give the exciting
news to the student that their American dream is going to come
true!
