Host families needed in Elburn

By on July 22, 2011

ELBURN—Families in Elburn are needed to host high school exchange students from all over the world. Academic Year in America is bringing hundreds of high school students to the U.S. to learn about American culture while living with volunteer host families and studying at high schools across the nation. American families have the unique opportunity to learn about the student’s culture during this mutually rewarding exchange.

AYA can help families find the ideal student for their home. The result is an enriching, lifelong relationship with a young person from abroad.

Students ages 15 to 18 arrive with full medical insurance, spending money, and stay with their host for five or 10 months while attending the local high school.
