Kansas 4-H Seeking Academic Year Hosts for 2023-2024

Submitted by Mary Kay Munson

High school students from South Korea 4-H and Japan’s Labo and LEX need hosts sponsored by the Kansas 4-H Program. This program offers opportunities to expose families, schools, and communities to youth of other cultures and countries in an in-depth relationship that can last a lifetime. Families with teen 4-H members are ideal to share their high school and 4-H experience with an Academic Year student, but there are no requirements for a host sibling in the family. The program begins around August 1, 2023, when students arrive from the national orientation until departure in mid-June 2024. Families and student are supported by a well-managed program with a local 4-H coordinator, state coordinator and national Academic Year Program (AYP) manager who assure positive youth development and Federal Visa Regulations are observed.
