ERDT/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.
Each year, the SHARE! High School Exchange Program selects and sponsors approximately 750 exchange students, between the ages of 15 and 18 years old, to experience life in the United States by living with Host Families and attending local public high schools for one semester or a full academic year.
SHARE! is looking for caring adults or families to host international exchange students for the upcoming school year or semester. 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. SHARE! students come from more than twenty five different countries!
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!
