Host a student, ‘see’ the world
This time of year brings many memories. As I send cards and letters I include many of the current and former AFS Intercultural Programs High School Exchange Students who have been in our area. Our exchange son from Germany, who was here in 199192, visited me on Mother’s Day. Andi attended Downey High School. He was in California and made time to see his host family. This, and many others like it, are experiences that one can have when you welcome an exchange student into your home.
As you welcome family and friends for the holidays, think about choosing to host a young person from another country. This will broaden their lives and yours as well. AFS students are filling out their applications now and their names will be available in January for 2019 arrival. Contact AFS through: afsusa.org. Or, Nancy Howard. [email protected]
