Ayusa seeks host families for school year
Ayusa Global Youth Exchange is seeking host families in Haywood and Buncombe County to host high school exchange students for the upcoming 2013-14 school year.
To qualify, a host family must: pass a background check, meet with a local representative, receive school permission to enroll the exchange student, provide the student with room and board and provide a safe, supportive and loving home environment.
Exchange students are between 15 and 18 years old and come from over 60 countries around the world. Students have their own spending money and health insurance and have studied English for at least three years.
“Hosting an exchange student is a wonderful way for your whole family to give back together, while experiencing a new culture,” Anne Raybon, tenured Ayusa regional director said.
To learn more about hosting, contact Raybon at 298-8873 or visit www.ayusa.org.
