ELBURN—Student Travel Schools (STS) Foundation, a 25-year-old non-profit organization that promotes Global learning and leadership through cultural exchange and leadership programs for high school students, is looking for American families interested in hosting an exchange student for the 2013-14 school year.

STS Foundation welcomes families who would like to host an international exchange student including families without children, empty nesters, military families, retirees and single people. STSF families come from all over the U.S., including both rural and urban communities.

Host families provide three meals a day and a bedroom (either private or shared). Each student is supported by a professionally trained local representative from STSF who works with the family, student and local school for the entire program. Students will have their own health insurance and spending money for lunches, books, clothes and outings.

• Samantha is from Australia. She is 15 years old and enjoys horseback riding, family activities and golfing. Samantha is an A average student, and she will come to the U.S.A. for one semester.
