NORTHWEST STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM SEEKING HOST FAMILIES FOR 2016-17 SCHOOL YEAR
Foreign exchange students for the 2016-2017 school year are in need of kind and loving families here in Fort Worth. Would your family like to host a student that would attend Paschal High School?Exchange students come from all over the world - Switzerland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, China, Japan and more! Host families like yours are needed to provide safe, loving homes to our students.
You would supply:
A bed (sharing a room with a same sex sibling is fine)
Three meals a day
Transportation to/from school and activities (sports, church, doctors)
Exchange students have insurance, speak English, have strong grades and bring their own money to cover their expenses. They arrive in August and stay until school concludes in June.
We encourage you to also involve your family, friends and neighbors to help take them places. Once the student arrives, they will make friends easily through clubs, sports and church. NWSE offers trips for them to participate in if they would like to do so.
If you would like to host...check out the online application here
You will need to upload 5 photos with your application:
1. Front of house in daytime
4, Students bedroom (showing bed)
5. Students bathroom (showing toilet)
If you have extra room and would love to explore another culture, consider hosting an exchange student!
