About

Have you ever wanted to learn about another country but don’t have time for a vacation? If so, hosting an exchange student could be for you! NorthWest Services PEACE Program has exchange students from various countries who are looking for a caring host family, just like yours, to host them for the school year. The students are 15 - 18 years of age and will begin arriving in August to spend the upcoming 5 - 10 months with a caring family while attending your local high school. There is no such thing as a typical host family! Whether you are a single parent, retired, have small children, teens, or no children, you can have a great experience hosting an international teen! The students are pre-screened; speak English, and looking forward to learning about our culture while teaching you about their culture and country. They have medical insurance and their own spending money to cover such things as clothing, school supplies, and entertainment. All that these students require is a bed, meals and a caring family to share their 5-10 month stay within our beautiful country. Since early placement is crucial to the success of the program, our goal is to have the students matched with host families by July 1. The timing is important in developing the bonds of the "new family". Please help NW Services, Inc. PEACE Program make the dreams of these young Teens come true, with the opportunity to live and study in our country, and possibly aide in making a difference in their future.
