International student exchange program seeks Ada host families

Ada — Visiting students, ages 15-18, from Germany, Spain, Switzerland, and Thailand are seeking host families in and around Ada for the upcoming 2014-2015 academic school year. Host families are needed for the fall semester and full school year.

Host families (traditional families, singles, empty nesters, etc.) serve as mentors and a home base for their student. Visiting students participate as active members of the family and integrate into their host’s daily routines and traditions just like any other family member.

“Every year the state of Oklahoma plays host to talented, top-of-their-class students with the lifelong dream of studying in America,” said  Darlene Benjamin, iE-USA’s Area Director. “Oklahoma’s spirit of hometown hospitality and focus on academic enrichment makes it an ideal environment to develop cultural exchange and promote international diplomacy on a local level.”

iE-USA, the sponsoring program, is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting education and understanding through intercultural and academic exchange.

Exchange students undergo an extensive

application and orientation process in their home country prior to being accepted into iE-USA’s program.

Each student is responsible for his/her own spending money and full health insurance coverage.

To learn more, contact Ada representative, Katie Robinson at k.robinson@international-experience.net 512-538-8080.

Host families may review prospective student profiles online at iE-USA.org.

Families interested in hosting this year must apply by Aug. 15, 2014.
