Host Families Needed for Foreign Exchange Students

Applications are being accepted for volunteer families who are intested in hosting a foreign exchange student in their home for the coming school year: August 2021-June 2022. Foreign exchange students make a great contribution to our school, our community, and to your family! Students are carefully selected and screened, and they come with their own health insurance and spending money — all that is required from you is a bed, board and welcome. If your family is interested in hosting an exchange student this year, please contact Wendy Waldes for more information: 801-709-3583.
