International Experience-USA is asking area families to host exchange students for the school year.

View Larger

Visiting students, ages 15-18, from around the world are seeking host families in and around Hinesville for the 2014-15 academic school year.
Host families — traditional families, singles, empty nesters, etc. — serve as mentors and provide a home base for their student. Visiting students participate as active members of the family and integrate into their host’s daily routines and traditions just like any other family member.
“Every year, Georgia plays host to hundreds of talented, top-of-their-class students with the lifelong dream of studying in America,” said Joseph Bissell, International Experience-USA regional director. “Our state’s hospitality and prominent focus on academic enrichment makes it an ideal environment to develop cultural exchange and promote international diplomacy on a local level.”
IE-USA is a nonprofit organization that promotes education and understanding through intercultural and academic exchange.
Exchange-student participants undergo an extensive application and orientation process in their home country prior to being accepted into iE-USA’s program. Each student is responsible for his/her own spending money and full health-insurance coverage.
Host families are needed for the fall semester and full school year. Those interested in hosting this year must apply by Aug. 15.
For more information, email Emily Rolin at e.rolin@international-experience.net or call 269-625-4662. Host families may review prospective student profiles at iE-USA.org.
