Looking for an amazing opportunity to make a lasting impression on a young person's life? PAX is looking for host families who are interested in opening their homes to amazing young people from all over the world! PAX is a leader in the field of international student exchange, working with over 1100 students from 70 countries each year, helping them realize their dreams of spending an academic year in the United States.
We currently have a student, Mona from Germany, enrolled at Hinsdale South High School. She is in need of a new home for the remainder of the year, and we are looking for a great host for her. Mona is a fantastic young lady, an excellent student, and very active in activities such as dance, painting, cooking, traveling, and learning all that she can about life in the U.S! We also have students arriving in January for the second semester who are still looking for the perfect home!
All types of "families" are eligible to host; single parents, empty nesters, young couples with no children, etc. We ask that our host families provide a loving environment, a bed, and include the exchange student in family meals. Students are respnsible for all of their own spending money, and are provided with full health insurance. Students and host families are also supported by a local PAX representative, as well as the national office.
Please contact me directly for more information about hosting Mona, or any of our other amazing students! You can reach me at StephenH@pax.org.
