CASE Exchange Student Programs would like to invite you to meet a very special person in 2013. Families in school districts across Georgia are invited to offer their hospitality to a high school age exchange student for the upcoming school year starting in late August.
The students hail from 33 different countries and are eager to know who they will be living with, and what part of Georgia will be their host community. Each student is between 15 and 18 years of age, has been well screened for maturity and adaptability, and has full medical and spending money.
The host family provides room, board and a measure of guidance for the student during his or her stay in the US. Empty nesters, couples or singles are eligible to offer their hospitality.
According to Sandra Storer, the program’s regional director, families that volunteer early have the opportunity to begin communicating with their student before arrival. This early bonding makes it easier for everyone to handle cultural obstacles once the student arrives. CASE is a non-profit organization with Area Representatives throughout Georgia.
