Academic Year Programs (AYP) offer the opportunity for families to host a full school year.  Students usually arrive around August 1 and depart in June.  Japan, Korea and countries of Eastern Europe and Eurasia are available for AYP hosting.  The latter students are part of the FLEX (Future Leaders Exchange) a U.S. government-funded exchange, are from the following countries:  Armenia, Azerbaijan, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, Mongolia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Ukraine.  We encourage families to let us know of their interest and complete applications and screening as soon as possible in order to consider as many students and countries as possible.

For information about hosting in any of these programs and application, contact:  Mary Kay Munson, Kansas 4-H International Exchange Coordinator, at 785-238-3631 or munson@ksbroadband.net.
