Host a foreign exchange student and gain a global perspective

Submitted By Carol Berger

World Heritage Student Exchange Programs, a nonprofit organization, 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.

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.

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 for Chareef, or any of our other students, and to find out more about World Heritage, please contact Carol or Susan Berger at (209) 863-2194, via e-mail at arielpdog@sbcglobal.net, 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.
