HOST AN EXCHANGE STUDENT FOR 2019-20: Becoming a HOST FAMILY to an INTERNATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT is a rewarding and fun experience. You share the American high school experience with a student from another country, and in turn your family will learn about their country and culture. Lifelong friendships are often formed. It is a simple process. We have exchange students from all over the world looking to experience America with a resident family. I will work with you to find a good match for your family. Each student that is hosted through CETUSA (Council for Educational Travel, USA) is fully insured with health insurance and comes with their own spending money. As their American family you just provide a bedroom (can be shared with a sibling), family meals and a loving home. Contact Sue Hughes, CETUSA Local Coordinator, TODAY for more information on this amazing opportunity: Suebhughes57@gmail.com or 616-550-8463, www.cetusa.org.
