Local families needed to host exchange students

GENESEE COUNTY — Area families are still needed to host students who will study at local high schools for a semester or school year as part of an exchange student program.

Families of all types are eligible to host: those with young children or teens or families with no children at home. They are expected to treat their exchange students as family members. The students, who will arrive in August, are participating in the share.

The SHARE! Program, sponsored by Educational Resource Development Trust (ERDT), a global educational nonprofit foundation, was created to provide opportunities for greater understanding between Americans and peoples of the world.
