Nonprofit seeks host families for exchange students

In News by Reporter News

An international nonprofit facilitating high school student cultural exchanges is seeking host families in several areas of Texas, including Pearland.

Ayusa International has begun a search for families in Texas interested in hosting international students for the 2015-2016 school year.

“Texas is the top destination for Ayusa exchange students in the U.S.,” said Connie Coutu, Ayusa regional manager for the Southwest. “They love the rich history of the Lone Star State, our wide-open spaces and of course our famous hospitality.”

Host families provide the exchange student with three meals a day and a bedroom (private or shared). A professionally trained Ayusa representative supports each host family, student and local school throughout the program year. Ayusa’s students are 15-18 years old and come from more than 60 countries. All are fully insured, bring their own spending money and are proficient in English.

Interested families can learn more about the program and available exchange students, and request additional information by visiting http://www.ayusa.org or calling 1-888-552-9872.
