Expand Your World - Host a Foreign Exchange Student

Expand your world by hosting a foreign exchange student this coming year.

Is your family a bit adventuresome? Are you interested in exposing your kids to a different culture and language? If so, hosting an exchange student might be a perfect fit for you. Many different family types and sibling mixes work very well.  You do not have to have a New Trier student to be a host family.  It is a big commitment as the students stay with one host family for 10 ½ months, but it is also an incredible experience and lots of fun for everyone. You often become friends for life with a great kid from somewhere else in the world. Visit www.afs.org for more information or contact Beth Drucker at bstolley@aol.com.
