AFS seeks host families

AFS (formerly the American Field Service) has been a leader in the field of student exchange for more than 60 years. This year five exchange students are being hosted in Fallbrook and attending Fallbrook High. We are receiving applications now for students who will be arriving in mid-August for the either fall semester or for the next school year. These high school age students are interested in learning about our culture, improving their English skills, and expanding their life experiences. Hosting families also gain new experiences and make new friends.

We are also interested in talking to high school students and their parents if there is interest in studying abroad. Merit-based and needs-based scholarship opportunities are available.

My family has hosted several students and found it enriching and enjoyable. This year I am serving as volunteer hosting coordinator for the San Diego area. If you would like to learn more about the program, please contact me at (760) 728-5682 or visit www.afssandiego.org.
