Host families needed for foreign exchange students
World Heritage, a nonprofit, public benefit organization, is seeking host families for high school boys and girls from countries around the world for the 2000-2001 school year.
These academically selected exchange students speak English and are eager to learn about America by living with a local family and attending high school for a year.
Students are fully insured, have their own spending money and expect to share household chores and be included in family activities. Host families, in turn, will learn about the foreign student's country and culture.
Families may select the student of their choice from applications, photos and biographical essays.
