Have you considered hosting an exchange student? It opens up the world to your family and provides the chance of a lifetime for a young person from another country.
You may choose the country, gender, hobbies and interests of the student to provide the best possible match for your family.
This is an enriching and heart-opening experience for all, resulting in lifelong friendships and a future chance for travel to your student’s country. Hosting can be for a semester, a school year (most common), or as a short term “welcome family.”
You provide room and board and the biological family provides for all other expenses. If you open your home to a student this fall, your kids will gain a special brother or sister and a new perspective on the world. Arrangements need to be made as soon as possible for students arriving in late August. Contact Merry Henn for more information: 301-651-3106, or by email at ICESwesternNC@gmail.com.
