Families sought to host exchange students PDF Print E-mail

STS Foundation, a 25-year old non-profit organization that promotes global learning and leadership through cultural exchange and leadership programs for high school students, is looking for American families interested in hosting an exchange student for the 2013-2014 school year.
STS Foundation welcomes families who would like to host an exchange student including families without children, empty nesters, military families, retirees, and single people.
STSF families come from all over the U.S., including rural and urban communities. Host families provide three meals a day and a bedroom (either private or shared). Each student is supported by a professionally trained local representative from STSF who works with the family, student and local school for the entire program.
Students will have their own health insurance and spending money for lunches, books, clothes and outings.
Meet some of the STSF students:
• Samantha from Australia is 15 and enjoys horseback riding, family activities and golfing. Samantha is an A average student. She will come to the USA for one semester.
• Mikel from Germany loves playing soccer. He trains three times a week and has games on the weekends. Mikel has two younger brothers. He is looking forward to his adventure in the USA.
