Forte International Exchange Association (FIEA) is now searching for Host Families for our Exchange Students! Host families are some of the most important volunteers, fostering cultural exchange between multiple countries. Our students (15 - 18 years old) are some of the brightest: the criteria for student selection includes qualifying their English and academic ability, maturity and flexibility, and a desire to promote cross-cultural understanding. FIEA sponsors close to 400 students per year from close to 20 countries, and they attend a local high school for a year or a semester. All Forte students speak English, are fully medically insured, and bring their own money for personal expenses.
As a Host Family, your exchange student becomes a member of your family. Host Families can be married or single adults (25 years or older), with or without children. Our Host Families reflect the diversity of American culture! In addition, Host Families provide a room/shared room, three meals a day and loving support, as well as, a desire to share American culture and learn about a new one. Host Families may select a student that best fits in with their own family.
FIEA is a non-profit student exchange association designated by the US State Department's exchange program. Our mission is to promote cultural exchange across America.
