Dear Community Members,
We are delighted to announce a very special program in your community!
AYUSA International (Academic Year in the USA) is a high school foreign exchange student organization. We welcome teenagers from over 70 countries worldwide and provide host family placement and ongoing supervision for 5 and 10-month academic programs. Our central goal is to provide young people with learning experiences that foster cultural appreciation, insight and meaningful friendship.
We invite you to participate in this unique and rewarding adventure by opening your heart and home to an exchange student.
AYUSA students are 15-18 years old.
Students will attend high school daily, participate in extra-curricular activities
and complete a community service project.
They look forward to a warm bond of friendship with your family and a rewarding cultural exchange.
Natural parents pay all program fees, health insurance and provide students with a spending allowance.
Host families are asked to provide food on the table and a bedroom either shared or private.
A professionally trained AYUSA Community Representative will explain all program details, help you select a student and provide ongoing support throughout the program.
All across the world, AYUSA students are eagerly awaiting their host family placement. Please call today and begin the adventure of a lifetime!
John M. Jackson - Regional Director
