Youth Exchange Student Host Families Needed for 2020-2021 School Year
 
The Greenville Rotary is looking for families who would be interested in hosting an exchange student during the 2019-2020 school year.  Greenville has a wonderful history of hosting an exchange student every year and an integral part of this is finding families to open their homes to youth from around the world.
 
The fascination and rewards of temporarily hosting a teen from another country is a unique opportunity provided by Rotary Clubs worldwide.  Students come to our community and enroll in GCS for a full year. During that time, they stay with three different families to give them a sense of the diversity of family life in the U.S. The average stay with each family is 3-4 months.
Some families may have children close to the age of the exchange student, some may have older or younger children, others may be childless or empty nesters. Some families may be more interested in sports, others in culture. The only requirements are a separate bed for the student, open minds and big hearts.
Students are treated as members of the family, not as guests. If your children are assigned chores, your Rotary student can also have family chores. It’s the student’s job to adapt to the family, not vice versa.  By hosting a Youth Exchange student in your home, you’ll make a young person’s dream come true, and you and your family will share an unforgettable and fulfilling experience.
If you are interested in becoming a host family please contact Greenville Rotary Youth Exchange Officer, Todd Hilgendorff.  518-966-5070 ext. 519. hilgendorfft@greenvillecsd.org
