Family hosts sought

MANISTIQUE – As London played host to the world during the Summer Olympics, Academic Year in America is looking for Manistique area families to play host to the world by welcoming an exchange student into their home for four to six weeks.

This year, AYA is bringing hundreds of high school students age 15 to 18½ to the United States. With AYA’s tailored matching system, families have the unique opportunity to find a student who will be the perfect fit for their household.

AYA is a nonprofit organization designated by the U.S. Department of State to offer J-1 visas to international students. AYA is sponsored by the American Institute For Foreign Study Foundation.

To learn more about hosting an exchange student, call Stella at (800) 322-4678, ext. 5164 or e-mail aya.info@aifs.org. Visit AYA on the web at www.academicyear.org.
