Local Families Needed to Share America with Exchange Students
American freedom and democracy are a part of our everyday lives and something that we often take for granted. Have you ever thought about sharing with the rest of the world what makes America so special? You can by hosting a teen from one of more than thirty countries for the upcoming school year or semester.
Lexington families are still needed to host students who will study at local high schools for a semester of school year. Families of all types are eligible to host: those with young children or teens or families with no children at home. They are expected to treat their exchange students as family members. The students, who will arrive in August, are participating in the SHARE! High School Exchange Program to learn firsthand about Americans and our way of life. They speak English, have medical insurance, and bring spending money for personal expenses. The SHARE! Program, sponsored by Educational Resource Development Trust (ERDT), a global educational nonprofit foundation, was created to provide opportunities for greater understanding between Americans and peoples of the world.
