082213 Exchange Student Hosts (205)

LACONIA — Local families are invited to "Share Your America" with a high school exchange student from one of 70 European, South American, Asian, or African countries during the upcoming school year. Sponsored by PAXProgram of Academic Exchange (PAX), these students arrive to the U.S. in August, over the next two weeks.

PAX students are 15-18 years old, have studied English for at least three years, and are motivated to learn more about the U.S. by attending high school and living with a host family. PAX students are eager to experience American activities—backyard barbecues, birthday celebrations, and holidays with their host families. They are covered by comprehensive medical insurance and have their own spending money for incidentals.

Volunteer host families provide PAX students with a bed, a quiet place to study, a seat at the dining table, a warm and supportive home environment, and encouragement to engage in everyday American life. With their exchange students, host families experience such activities through fresh eyes while also learning about the exchange student's country and culture.

Host family opportunities are available to all types of families. Single parents, young couples, retirees, and parents with teenagers are all welcome to host.

For more information, call Shannon Robinson-Beland at 603-393-5616 or visit www.pax.org.
