Students seek host homes


The Center for Cultural Interchange is looking for families to host foreign exchange students from their Academic Year Program (AYP) for 2010-11.

AYP offers students the chance to be immersed in a cultural experience that includes connecting with a host family in the United States, attending an American high school, participating in eco-focused activities through AYP, and experiencing first-hand life as a teenager in America.

CCI needs to place 1,000 exchange students from more than 40 countries around the world. These students are 15- to 18-years old and proficient in English.

The deadline to apply is Aug. 31. For more information, visit
