Youth Exchange Builds Peace

How do we begin to manifest world peace? One person at a time. And you can get started right away. Where to begin? If you are a family that has a student in high school this fall, please consider hosting another one! An opportunity exists within our Parish to sponsor one or more foreign exchange students. The host family will take a student from overseas and treat them as if they are a member of their family. This is truly a unique way to experience another culture and to share our culture with them. This is an educational experience that cannot be taught in a classroom. Students learn a new language, discover another culture, and truly become global citizens. Exchanges for students 15 to 19 years old are sponsored by Rotary clubs in more than 100 countries. Hosting an exchange student can be incredibly rewarding for your family, bringing an international experience directly into your home. Host families provide room and board and share their lives with exchange students, involving them in faith, family, community, and cultural activities. If you are seriously interested in participating in this program, please call the church office at 325-677-2091.
