Hosts for Academic Year Exchanges Needed 2020 -2021 School Year

Submitted by Mary Kay Munson

Kansas 4-H families have the opportunity to host high school students from Japan, South Korea, counties of Eastern and Southern Europe, Asia and Africa.  Now is the right time to apply, as applications from students begin arriving in early February.  Families must be approved to host before they can read applications for students they are considering.  It is disappointing to choose student that the family agrees is a good fit only to find out that another family committed first.  Families throughout the U.S. select from the same States’ 4-H pool of students.  These students are mostly in grades 10-12, good students, eager to get involved and volunteer, and adequate English speakers.  4-H exchanges students are selected for success and supported by 4-H at all levels.  Contact Mary Kay Munson, State AYP Coordinator, at 785-238-3631 or munson@ksbroadband.net
