November 25, 2009 // 0 Comments

Have you ever wanted to travel around the world and learn about different cultures? CASE Exchange Student Programs would like to invite you to see the world without leaving home, by hosting a foreign exchange student from South America, Europe or Asia for the upcoming school year! Each year, CASE provides high school age students the opportunity to travel to the U.S. and live with a warm and caring host family, while attending a semester or academic year at the public school closest to the host home. The students have full medical coverage and their own spending money. The host family provides room, board and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for some lucky foreign teen. Many families find that when they open their hearts and homes to an exchange teen, they suddenly find their home filled with fun and laughter, all wrapped in a charming foreign accent. CASE also has an Outbound Program that offers American teens the opportunity to travel abroad as exchange students for a summer, semester or full academic year. To qualify, American teens must be between 15 and 18 years old and hold a B or better average in school. For more information on hosting an exchange student, or becoming one, contact Rick Wiltse at (616) 805-3136 or call the CASE Regional Office toll free at (877) 417-9675.
