Each year, the SHARE High School Exchange Program selects and sponsors approximately 650 exchange students, between the ages of 15 and 18 years old, to experience life in the United States by living with American Host Families and attending local public high schools for one semester or a full academic year. The students come from a variety of countries in Western and Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, North America (French-speaking Canada), and Central and South America.
Host families are still needed for the 2013- 2014 school year to SHARE their care and their home with international exchange students.
- The deadline for the placement process is August 1st in APS schools, but there is still plenty of time (Cindy can help you through the process).
- Students speak English, have their own spending money for personal expenses and have insurance.
- Students from many countries, and families may choose their own student.
If you and your family would like to find out more about opening your heart and home to one of these students, please contact:
