Volunteers -with or without children- are needed to host international teen ambassadors from over 40 different countries for the upcoming school semester or academic year. They are in need of caring families to provide a home and share with them this unique experience. Host families will provide a bed, meals, as well as friendship, understanding, and a genuine desire to share the American way of life with a youngster from overseas. All students speak English, are covered by medical insurance, and have spending money for their personal expenses. The young ambassadors are between the ages of 15 and 18, and will attend the high school closest to their host family's home or a private high school. Families are able to review student applications and select the student they feel will best match their family. For more information, please call Yvette Coffman at the SHARE! Southwest Office at 1-800-941-3738. Requirements: Our SHARE! Families are diverse! Host families can be two-parent households with young children or teenagers, single parent families, families with adopted children, foster parents, as well as couples or single people who do not have children or who have grown children.
