The exchange program is an opportunity for families to have an international experience in their own homes, according to Kathy Atkinson, who is coordinating the host families.
Atkinson said the hosting experience stimulates interest in other countries and other people while enriching everyday life.
“International student exchanges provide enriching experiences for both the student and the host family and foster understanding between the U.S. and other countries of the world,” she said.
International students have their own spending money and insurance.
Host families provide room and board and a welcoming family experience. Families do not need to have students in the school to participate.
