Host Family Needed For Exchange Student

Youth For Understanding (YFU), a nonprofit educational organization, is seeking volunteers and families to mentor and host high school exchange students coming to South HS. Will you consider welcoming a student? We are currently trying to find a home and volunteer support for several students, including Wawa, a 15 year old girl from Thailand. Wawa is passionate about making a difference in the world. She’s an amazingly dedicated student, part of Model UN and Student Council and hopes to study law. She loves music and plays both violin and piano. She enjoys sports too—Wawa is all around an engaged girl who is ready to learn and try on your family’s customs for size. All you really need to host is the ability and desire to share your home and open your heart to a new family member. Will you be the family to show Wawa that the American way of life goes beyond the Hollywood movies? Please be in touch with YFU Field Director Anna Peters at or 651-646-8173. Families are needed for temporary and year-long commitments. Learn why YFU, which serves families in sixty countries and was founded in 1951, is different at
