Just as London played host to the world during the Summer Olympics, Academic Year in America (AYA) is looking for Floresville-area families to play host to the world by welcoming an exchange student into their home for four to six weeks.

This year, AYA is bringing hundreds of high school students ages 15 to 18-1⁄2 to the United States. With AYA’s tailored matching system, families have the unique opportunity to find a student who will be the perfect fit for their household. Students come from more than 30 countries, such as Germany, China, Brazil, and Italy, and have a multitude of diverse talents and interests.

Bringing an international student into your home is an excellent way to give your family a “world view” of a different culture, according to host dad Tim McMahon, whose family has hosted five AYA students.

There are several key elements to the hosting experience. For five or 10 months, host families must provide their student with two meals a day and a place to sleep and study. Most importantly, they must welcome their student into their home as if they were a son or daughter. To help facilitate the exchange experience, host families will receive full support from an AYA local coordinator located in their community.

For more information, contact Stella at 1-800-322-4678, ext. 5164, or aya.info@aifs.org, or visit AYA on the web at www.academicyear.org.
