    Families sought to host exchange students

    Host families are needed for incoming foreign exchange high school students. Students are 15-18 years old, are English-speaking, have their own spending money and carry health insurance.

    Families can consist of a single parent, a childless couple or a retired couple.

    Host families are eligible to claim a monthly charitable contribution deduction on their itemized tax returns for each month they host a sponsored student.

    Families interested in learning more about the program or to arrange for a meeting with a community representative, can call Pacific Intercultural Exchange at 866-546-1402.
