Well everybody knows I am all about healthy habits. One healthy habit I have had since 2003 is hosting and working with high school foreign exchange students. Yes, I have willing brought in teenagers from other countries into my home and let them live with me for anywhere between a few months to 12 months. I have hosted kids from Russia, France, Germany, Spain, Mongolia, Taiwan, Australia, Hong Kong, Brazil, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Ukraine and Korea. Let me tell you, it has been wondering raising my own children to embrace cultural diversity. They have broken bread with, traveled with and lived with people from all parts of the globe who know other languages, have different religions, practice different customs, celebrate different holidays, and so on and so forth.
You know what else is awesome? You can participate in this amazing experience as well. My day-job is Regional Director for a non-profit organization called Face The World. This is something I am very passionate about. I just love being a cheerleader for these kids and families and help making dreams come true, while forging lifelong relationships across the Globe.
Here are some photos of various foreign exchange students that I have had the pleasure to know.
Right now, we are accepting Host Family applications and have limited school slots across the U.S.This is such a wonderful program and experience for your family. I would love to share this opportunity and let you know about our program. We have been able to host over a dozen students in our home and it has changed our lives for good. Please share this post and contact me for more information. Families provide a loving home and meals for the year. Students come with their own spending money and Insurance. Students are age 15-18.
Thank You for considering helping a students dream come true by opening up your heart and home and making a difference. LET’S BRING THE WORLD HOME! And remember, SHARING is a healthy habit! Email me anytime: firstname.lastname@example.org
