In a press release earlier this week, the World Heritage Student Exchange Program, a public benefit, non-profit organization, announced that it is seeking local host families for high school boys and girls from Spain, Germany, Thailand, Norway, Taiwan, France, the former Soviet Union countries, Denmark, Italy, Sweden and more!
“Host families are asked to include the student as a member of their family.” The program is open to families, single parents, and couples for hosting for a semester or for the entire school year.
“Each World Heritage student is fully insured, brings his/her own personal spending money and expects to contribute to his/her share of household responsibilities, as well as being included in normal family activities and lifestyles.”
Kelly Blake of Lilburn has been a Volunteer Local Area Rep for World Heritage Student Exchange Programs since 1999. Involved with International Student Clubs since high school and college, she enjoys meeting and helping foreign students come to America by helping to find host families for the incoming students.
Kelly, the mom of two, is married to Jeff Schaefer, the orchestra teacher a Trickum Middle School. They share common goals to help people AND animals in any way they can. Kelly frequently speaks to exchange students, host families and local school counselors to make sure the school year goes as smoothly as possible.
