“Hosting an international exchange student is a wonderful way for American families to learn about another country and culture without ever leaving their homes,” says Laura Stahl, Special Services Director for Organization for Cultural Exchange Among Nations. “It is also a great way to promote cultural awareness while providing young people with the opportunity of a lifetime.” While participating in the exchange program students learn how Americans celebrate holidays that may be new to them, such as Halloween and Thanksgiving. They also participate in the family’s daily life while attending American Students are fully insured, proficient in English and come with their own spending money to cover personal expenses.

Organization for Cultural Exchange Among Nations is currently sponsoring students from the countries of Brazil, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Ecuador, Germany, Kyrgyzstan, Slovakia, Spain and the Ukraine.

Families of all types are able to participate in our program, to include single persons and senior citizens, as well as married couples who are either with or without children. Host families are volunteers and are asked to provide the student with room and board, as well as a loving family environment. For more information about hosting contact Janet Sinning 507-251-1657 or email her at jsinning@hostanexchangestudent.org.
