SWWHS is still enrolling international exchange students. Please consider serving as a host family!

Posted on: August 9th, 2017 by Leslie Pace

Have you ever considered hosting an international student?

This is your opportunity to create an international family when you welcome a Youth For Understanding (YFU) exchange student into your home for 10-12 weeks this fall!  These 15 to 18 year-old students speak English, have their own spending money, insurance and are carefully selected based on academics and recommendations. YFU welcomes host families of all types and sizes, whether you are a single adult, have young children, are a same-sex couple, or are empty-nesters. However your family is made, our students look forward to meeting you! YFU students attend your local high school during the day and share their traditions, holidays and customs with you, their YFU host family. YFU is here for your family every step of the way with group orientations, trained and dedicated local volunteers and 24-hour professional support staff. With more than 65 years of experience, students and families around the world trust YFU because of our reputation for quality, high safety standards, and caring support network. This opportunity is available to families nationwide so spread the word! Join the vibrant YFU global community. Visit www.yfuusa.org/meetstudents or speak with your local YFU field director at  1.800.872.0200 today!
