The foreign exchange program that I participated with in my year in
Switzerland is looking for 72 families in the 'Southwestern Region", which
includes California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Hawaii. We
are only three weeks away from arrival, but still have so many to fill!

We are hosting a student from Italy this year, so we are "all full up" as
they say. But we know that there are other families out there, be they
empty nesters, families with teenagers, families with preteens, etc. who
would be wonderful host families for a student wanting to come to this
country to learn more about us, and in the process more about themselves.
If you know of anyone who might be interested in such an experience, please
contact me, and I'll be certain to put you in touch with the appropriate
people in your area!

Although most of the students need a home from mid August until end of June
next year, we are looking for folks to host the students even on a temporary
basis until a permanent placement can be found, so please think about it and
see if you or someone you know might be able to help out!
