Teens seek host homes


The Center for Cultural Interchange is looking for families to host foreign exchange students from their Academic Year Program (AYP) for 2010-11.

AYP offers students the chance to be immersed in a cultural experience that includes connecting with a host family in the United States, attending an American high school, participating in eco-focused activities through AYP, and experiencing firsthand life as a teenager in America.

CCI needs to place 1,000 exchange students from more than 40 countries around the world. These students are 15 to 18 years old and proficient in English.

The deadline to apply is Aug. 31. e-mail, go to
