Non-profit global exchange organization Council for Educational Travel USA (CETUSA) is in its high season for interviewing host families who want to share their American pride with teenagers from other countries. Families who would like to open their homes to a cross-cultural experience can host an exchange student who wishes to live with an American host family and attend an American high school for an academic semester or year.

CETUSA students will arrive in August from forty- three countries including Albania. Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria. Canada, the Czech Republic, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Macedonia, Mexico, Montenegro, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Venezuela, Vietnam, and more. Students come with their own spending money, medical insurance, and an eagerness to learn what makes our country so great.
