Host Family Needed in Rockford area

A host family in the Rockford High School area is being sought for 16 year old female exchange student from France due to arrive in late August for the upcoming academic year. She enjoys family activities, acting, shopping, likes children, and is ready to become a participating member of her American host family ­ pitching in on everything from household chores to family discussions.

Imagine Homecoming, holidays or even that first school bus ride, as seen through the eyes of a foreign exchange student. It is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for an exchange teen and the family that hosts her. Hosts provide room, board and guidance for the student during their exchange experience. Families with small or grown children are eligible to host.

The sponsoring program, CASE, is a nonprofit organization, dedicated to providing youth from around the world the opportunity to exchange a cross-cultural experience. Each year CASE sponsors approximately 200 such exchanges between the United States and 28 foreign countries. CASE believes that the seeds to promote peace and harmony are planted in these young internationals who come to America to learn about our culture and people, and establish lasting friendships with their host families and new American communities.

For more information on hosting this young lady or an exchange student from another country, contact CASE toll free 1 (877) 417-9675. www.exchangestudents.org
