Local Host Families Needed for Foreign Exchange Students


Two exchange students--one from Finland and one from Italy-have just lost their host families for their 2014 placement. AYUSA, a high school exchange program sponsored by the Department of State, is looking for new families for them. There are both semester and year-long hosting opportunities. When you host an international student and open your home, you're giving them the opportunity to learn about America as a high school student in your community. In return, you get to experience a new culture and create a lifelong bond between your family and theirs.

If you reside in the Alvin ISD, Houston ISD or Fort Bend ISD areas and would be interested in hosting or know someone who would, contact Vicki Odom at and say you found out about this opportunity on the ACC blog.
