Sounds like an interesting experience! Something I would consider as an empty nester. With two teenage boys of my own, my husband wouldn't appreciate me bringing another one home! :)

What I treasure most in life is being able to dream. During my most difficult moments and complex situations I have been able to dream of a more beautiful future. ..Rigoberta Menchu Tum

I volunteer for the Council on International Educational Exchange, and I am looking for host families in the Memphis area.

Open your heart and your home to an International High School student for one semester or a full school year. This has proven to be the best tool of diplomacy and bridge building between nations.

After celebrating 64 years in international education as a non-profit organization, the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) remains highly committed to our mission: "To help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world."
Each student in our program is individually interviewed to ensure that they have the appropriate maturity level to be a successful participant in our program.
CIEE strongly believes that by volunteering their time to community service, our students will become more involved in the American way of life. Therefore, we require that they participate in a "Community Service Project" (8 hours per semester) to ensure that they reciprocate the exchange and benefits to their host family, school, and their community.
Students are between 15-18 years old, have their own medical insurance, and spending money. There is no better time than NOW to learn more about our neighbors in the world!!
Students will arrive in August, 2012 for 5 or 10 months.

Why Host?
Introduce the heart of America
Unite our future leaders
Strengthen mutual understanding
Gain new insights and appreciation
for different cultures
Affect attitudes over lifetimes

Please help us make a difference in the world!
Be sure to visit our website for more information and to access the Host Family application at http://www.ciee.org/highschool
For more information and to participate in this rewarding intercultural experience please send me a message.
