NWS Peace Program Exchange Students
What: NWS PEACE Program is seeking caring families to host high school age 15-18, international exchange students for 5-12 months.
When: Students are now available for "adoption." Since early placement is crucial to the success of the program, our goal is to have the students matched with host families by May 1st.
Students come with medical insurance, and spending money. You provide a loving home, care and guidance, 3 meals, a bed, and an experience of a life time for your family as well as the student.
There is no such thing as a typcial host family. Whether you are a single parent, retired, have small children, teens, or no children, you can have a great experience hosting an international teen! Consider "adopting" today and make a difference in your life! The timing is important in developing the bonds of the "new family," DON'T DELAY!
Cannot host, but want to be involved? Call us and we will tell you how! Please help to make the dreams of these young people come true.
BRING THE WORLD TO YOUR DOORSTEP!
