What we're about

It takes a village to raise a family. But it also takes a family to raise a village. Think about it.

This is an open invite for Anchorage County locals, who are interested in sharing the comforts of their household with foreign exchange student applicants, seeking 1 to 2-semesters of domiciled educational studies, within the ASD network. This historic program and diplomatic experience is globally rewarding. Due to the inspiration Alaska brings to every tourist, this exchange program has major feats...where the lives impacted within every visiting students experience, reaches abroad to their family and/or beyond.

I have several applicant students awaiting an invite. Therefore I am offering to meet with any hopeful individuals and groups to discuss this program further. There are a few requirements to participate in this program, but there is also much flexibility...if you are willing and able. Please join me. Look forward to seeing you soon. Feel free to post any questions or comments you have. Thanks!
