Host a foreign exchange student

World Heritage Student Exchange Programs is now looking for American families to host high school students from Asia.

These personable and academically select exchange students speak English, are bright, curious, and eager to learn about this country through living as part of a family for an academic year and attending high school.

Your support of these students reinforces the United States commitment to education and opportunity throughout the world.

World Heritage is currently seeking host families for these well-qualified, bright, motivated and well-screened students coming from Japan, China, Thailand, Taiwan and South Korea. By living with local host families and attending local high schools, the students acquire an understanding of American values and build on leadership skills.

The exchange students arrive from their home country shortly before school begins and return at the end of the school year. Each World Heritage student is fully insured, brings his or her own personal spending money and expects to bear his or her share of household responsibilities, as well as being included in normal family activities and lifestyles.

At the same time the student will be teaching their newly adopted host family about their own culture and language.

To become a host family or find out more about World Heritage, please contact Tiffany Wilson, at 816-807-2765 or via email at Tiffany@world-heritage.org or visit www.whhosts.com.

World Heritage looks forward to welcoming you to the ranks of host families nationwide contributing to world peace and understanding through student exchange programs.
