Exchange program seeks local families

PAX-Program of Academic Exchange, a nonprofit foreign exchange student program, is recruiting local families to host students for the upcoming school year.

The students are European, South American, Asian or African. Students arrive to the U.S. in August for the upcoming school year. They are 15 to 18 years old, have studied English for at least three years and are motivated to learn more about the U.S. by attending high school and living with a host family.

They are covered by comprehensive medical insurance and have their own spending money.

Volunteer host families provide PAX students with a bed, a quiet place to study and supportive home environment. All types of families are welcome to host.
