Host an exchange student! My name is Brandy Dahlen. I am a local homeschooling parent, and I have been actively involved with exchange students for the past 7 years. Opening your home to a student is a fun and rewarding experience. Your children will be exposed to a new culture in a way that is unmatched in books. And it's tons of fun! A good host family can look like many things-teenagers, younger kids, no kids-just willing to include the student and treat them like part of the family. Your student will live with you for a semester or an academic year. They can share a room, as long as they have their own bed, and they will attend your local high school. All students come with their own spending money and insurance. If your family is interested in learning more about this unique opportunity, or would like to see profiles of students right now hoping for a host family for the 2013-2014 school year, please contact me at 422-1748 or email@example.com. I can also help you if your own student would like to learn more about exchange opportunities-short or long term. Thanks!
