Families needed to host foreign exchange students

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

North West Services is looking for caring families to host high school students (15- to 18-years-old) from various countries for the 2006-07 second semester. There are few opportunities in this world where an individual can take an active hand in making the world a better place . This is such an opportunity.

It is the time of year when Americans everywhere are considering opening their hearts and homes to one of these teens. N.W. Services ask local families to consider showing one of these foreign teens what America is all about. Students from Mangolia, South Korea, Columbia and several other countries are anxious to learn what family will help them launch their dream of spending a semester in America.

There is no such thing as a typical host family. Whether you are a single parent, retired, have small children or teens or no children at all, anyone can have a great experience hosting an exchange student.

All the students are prescreened; the speak English, have medical insurance and their own spending money. All these students require is a loving family to share their experience with is this beautiful country.

Those who are interested should contact N.W. Services at 866-846-3977. Experience is not necessary, as an orientation and support will be provided.

Student exchange is truly transformational diplomacy at its most fundamental level. There is no question that the love and support your family shares with the student you select will transform not only that individual, but your family forever. If you cannot host but would like to be involved call today to learn how you can be a local representative.
