Host an exchange student

Have you ever wanted to travel around the world and learn about different cultures?  CASE Exchange Student Programs would like to invite you to see the world without leaving home, by hosting a foreign exchange student from South America, Europe or Asia for the upcoming school year!

Each year, CASE provides high school age exchange students the opportunity to travel to the US and live with a warm and caring host family, while attending a semester or academic year at the public school closest to the host home. The students have full medical coverage and their own spending money.  The host family provides room, board, and a once in a lifetime opportunity for some lucky foreign teen. Many families find that when they open their hearts and homes to an exchange teen, they suddenly find their home filled with fun and laughter, all wrapped in a charming foreign accent.

In particular, the program is looking for a host family for a 17-year-old boy from Italy who says he enjoys swimming, skiing, and martial arts and watching basketball. Also, hailing from the West Bank, the program is looking for a host family for a 15 year old girl who is part of the Government YES scholarship program. She enjoys playing basketball, dancing and drama. Both students are anxious to experience the American school system and share their culture with their host communities.

For more information on hosting an exchange student, or becoming one, contact  Rick Wiltse toll free at CASE 1 877-417-9675.  www.case-usa.org
