HOST AN EXCHANGE STUDENT
Hosting exchange students has changed my life! I am looking for host families for the 2019-2020 school year that want to bring an international student into their family. The perfect host family is one that will love, support, teach, guide, and include your new son or daughter in your life, and wants to learn about another culture, and share the very best of America with them! If this isn't the right time for you, refer someone else that might be great! Contact me with any questions!
