AYP Host Families Can Apply Now for 2019-20

By Mary Kay Munson

The ideal time to apply to host a student for the next school year is December or January. The first students who will be hosted by families through States’ 4-H International Exchange Programs become available in late January. Host families must be approved before placements can be made with students, so it is advantageous for families to be approved by the time student packets arrive at the States’ 4-H Office in Seattle.

Students representing LEX and Labo in Japan, Bright Futures Education (BFE) in South Korea and FLEX coming from more than 20 countries of Eurasia, are hosted by States’ 4-H families. Information and application to host an AYP student are available from Mary Kay Munson, Kansas 4-H International Exchange Coordinator, munson@ksbroadband.net or 785-238-3631.
