The World Heritage Student Exchange Program, a public benefit organization, is seeking local host families for visiting high school students from more than 30 countries, including Spain, Germany, Thailand, Denmark, Portugal, Norway, South Korea, Italy, France and former Soviet republics.

Couples, single parents and families with or without children in the home are encouraged to host. Choose to host a student for a semester or for the school year.

Each World Heritage student is fully insured, brings his or her own personal spending money and expects to contribute to his or her share of household responsibilities as well as being included in normal family activities and lifestyles.

Today’s teens are tomorrow’s parents, international business people and possibly even future political leaders. Residents can share their corner of America by helping a foreign exchange student experience life in the area.
