Lyon family to host UFU International student PDF Print E-mail

Jon and Cassie Lyon of Grant are welcoming a new “daughter” for the 2010 academic year. 

Sibylle Skuba, a Youth For Understanding USA (YFU) exchange student from Germany will attend Perkins County Schools in Grant.

Eager to join her host family and become immersed in the Grant community, Sibylle will live as a true member of the Lyon family, participating in social activities and events, vacations, and daily household chores. 

In turn, she will also share the culture and customs of Germany with her host family, friends and fellow classmates.

More than 2,000 American families open their homes and hearts to YFU international students each year. With 65 offices around the globe, Youth For Understanding is one of the world’s oldest, largest, and most respected international exchange programs. 

Since 1951, YFU has facilitated more than 240,000 student exchanges across the globe in its mission to prepare young people for the responsibilities and opportunities in a changing, interdependent world.

Additional information regarding hosting international students through YFU USA is available at www.yfu-usa.org or at 1.866.4.YFU.USA.
