Have you ever thought about hosting an exchange student?

Joquetta Loveless, a local coordinator, with CIEE, Council on International Educational Exchange, a non-profit organization, joins us with some details on how to participate as a host family.

They have students from over 55 different countries. They are high school-aged kids ranging from ages 15-18. Students come fully insured and with their own spending money.

They all speak English and are well-screened. They are excellent students earning mostly A's and B's.

Host families would need to provide an extra place for them at meal time and their own bed.
