STS Foundation believes that intercultural student exchange promotes understanding, respect, and goodwill among people of all nations. Students, host families, schools and community will have an opportunity to learn more about one another's culture as they share the experience.
What could be more exciting and rewarding than being able to expand your family by hosting a foreign exchange student for one semester or full school year? You can request boy or girl, music lover or athlete, from Europe or from Asia, from South America or Australia and STS Foundation will try to make it happen for you.
When the student arrives, you will be treated to a new cultural experience almost as rich as the one you are providing for your new family member. For example, while you share Thanksgiving dinner with your student and explain it's origins, he/she could regale you with tales of Hannibal's crossing of the Italian Alps.
When the school year is over, it is the beginning of what will become a lifelong friendship. That's what being a host family is all about.
