Host families in area sought for exchange students
Eagle Staff Report
Brazos Valley families are being recruited to serve as hosts for foreign exchange students during the upcoming school year.
Colorado-based World Heritage and Idaho-based NW Services, both nonprofit high school exchange programs, are searching for area residents to volunteer.
World Heritage said it is looking for families, couples and single parents who are adventurous, fun-loving, responsible, caring and interested in hosting a foreign student for a semester or a year. Adults need not have children to serve as a host.
NW Services said it is seeking hosts for 15- to 18-year-old students who will be spending a semester or a year in the Bryan-College Station area. The students have their own spending money and health insurance, and come from countries throughout Europe, Asia and South America. Families with or without children or single adults who are willing to provide room, board and friendship can serve as hosts.
