Host an exchange student

World Heritage Student Exchange Programs, a respected nonprofit, public-benefit organization, is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from Scandinavia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Thailand, China, South Korea and the former Soviet Republics.

The students are excited and are already awaiting word about their host families for the 2014/15 academic school year (or semester). Host families provide room, board, and guidance for a foreign teenager living thousands of miles from home. Couples, single parents, and families with or without children living at home are all encouraged to apply. Therefore, the school deadline for the acceptance of exchange students is July 31.

The exchange students arrive from their home countries before the 2014/15 school year begins and each World Heritage student is fully insured, brings his/her own spending money, and expects to bear his/her share of household responsibilities as well as be included in normal family activities and lifestyles.

If you are interested in opening your home and sharing your family life with a young person from abroad, please contact local Area Representative Erin Kalbarczyk at 919/924-4679 or 1-800-888-9040 (toll-free). Please also visit World Heritage's website at
