This cultural exchange program works with the highest hopes of expanding cultural awareness. It is an experience and opportunity for the international student to learn firsthand about our American ways of life, rather than what they hear and see in the media. It is truly an experience you will love, benefit from and never forget!
This past year Patty and her family experienced firsthand the joy of hosting Jonas, a high school junior from Switzerland. Jonas played many sports, maintained great grades and made many American friends. Patty happily reports that he recently stayed with them for 2 weeks this year to attend his “American Senior prom” and will be visiting again over the summer to see his American friends.
