Our Club has an opportunity to host a foreign exchange student for the 2021-2020 school year.  This has proven to be a beneficial and exciting program when we participated in past years.  Not only does the exchange student benefit, but the host families and our Club in general learns so much about the country and culture from which the student hails.  Those of us who have hosted are still in touch with our "adopted" students many years after their stay here.  It is truly a unique and worthwhile experience. In order for us to participate we need to secure host families now.
We are looking at approximately 3 months for each family.  As a host family you provide room and board for the individual and include them in all your typical family activities - church, school, sports, leisure time activities, etc.  They become part of your family for 3 months. Next school year 2020/2021 the student arrives in mid August.  The Club does provide a stipend and the student brings money for expenses that are outside the "normal" day to day of feeding the student etc...
Interested Rotarians can call me.
