Host families wanted. There is no such thing as a typical host family! You can be married, single, retired, with children, or no children. Hosts provide the caring environment, room, and daily meals. Students are ages 15-18 years old, speak English well enough to attend a public high school, have their own spending money, and carry medical insurance. Students are available from over 30 different countries. Contact Carolyn Nicholson at (540) 661-6414.
