    Overview

    SHARE! is a global nonprofit educational foundation. Our mission is to create opportunities for greater tolerance and understanding between Americans and peoples of the world. We are looking for families to volunteer to host international students who attend local public high schools for an entire school year.

    Hosting a SHARE! exchange student fosters lifelong friendships and deeper understanding of other cultures.

    Host families provide a bed, meals, as well as friendship, understanding, and a desire to share their American way of life. All students speak English, are covered by medical insurance and have spending money for their personal expenses. They attend the high school closest to their host family's home and hope to arrive in August. Families are able to choose their own boy or girl from over 25 countries like Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, China, Thailand, South Korea, Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil.

    SHARE! families are diverse! Traditional two-parent families (with or without children), single parents or adults, and retired couples all make wonderful host families.

    Start making a difference in a young person's life and yours!
