Families Sought to Host High School Exchange Students

Staff reports

SHARE! is looking for host parents to host international exchange students for the 2011/2012 fall semester or school year.

The students speak English, are covered by medical insurance and have spending money for their personal expenses.

Host families provide a bed, meals, as well as friendship, understanding, and a genuine desire to share the American way of life.

SHARE! families are diverse! Traditional two-parent families (with or without children), single parents or adults, and retired couples are wonderful host families.

High school aged boys and girls from over 20 countries will be arriving late August to attend local high schools while living with their host family.

Persons interested in hosting or obtaining more information can contact Yvette Coffman at 800-941-3738 or visit www.sharesouthwest.org.
