Share your world with AFS exchange student
AFS Intercultural Programs/USA is looking for families in Truckee to host AFS Exchange Students arriving in the U.S. this September.
These international high school students are eager to attend a local high school, live with a host family and discover what America is all about. Students coming to the Truckee area still need supportive families to host them for six-12 weeks, a semester or the year.
Host families provide a bed and meals, share their daily lives with students and help guide and support students as they would their own children. Families and their hosted students receive ongoing support from AFS Staff and experienced, local volunteers.
By hosting an AFS student, you and your family will help build bridges of intercultural understanding while connecting with an outstanding young person and sharing your community.
