Host families sought for French exchange students

Host families are being sought for 14 to 15 French exchange students, ages 14-18, boys and girls, who will be in the Denver area from July 12-31.

The exchange is supported by the World Exchange, a nonprofit educational organization, that has been placing students from various countries with American families for over twenty years.

All exchange students will arrive with pocket money, full insurance and at least a fair fluency in English.

Host families are required to provide a bed, daily meals, and time to help students experience as much of American life as possible.

Program directors will plan at least two group activities, but the rest of the time the students will be spending with the host families.

An adult group leader will be accompanying the students, checking in on them on a regular basis.
