Host families needed for international exchange students interested in figure skating.

Greenheart International, a nonprofit agency, is searching for volunteer host families for high school foreign exchange students arriving in August.  Students stay an academic school year (through early June) and attend the local public high school where the host family resides.  Our students are 15-18 years old, they speak English, have medical insurance, and their own spending money.  We are searching for open minded and nurturing families South of the River who can provide a room (may be shared), meals, and a caring environment for their student.   Local Coordinators are available to provide support services/monitoring of the students and host families.  We have students from over 100 countries including Czech Republic, China, Germany, South Korea, Albania, Sweden, Brazil, Italy, & Poland…  For more information on the program or how to host one of our students, please contact Mary Armstrong at 952-657-3406 / / email:
