Can you help?

Hello

Would you be willing to please pass this along? We have many students from all over the world that we are seeking loving host families for. A quick Facebook post or email blast could help these teens tremendously. They have worked very hard in order to be accepted into the program.

My name is Christina and I'm from International Student Exchange, a non-profit based out of Babylon, NY. This past year we had many students all over Long Island that had an amazing experience. Pedro from Brazil even met the First Lady!

This past year our students participated in over 1000 hours of community service combined!

Do you have extra space in your home and love in your heart?

Become a family ambassador for the U.S. and promote cultural acceptance and understanding. It is only through the kindness and generosity of families like yours that international teens will be able to enjoy an experience of a lifetime. You and your family have the opportunity to build bridges among cultures around the world.

Volunteering makes family relationships stronger and teaches kids values such as kindness, empathy and respect for others. Perhaps even more important, it teaches that happiness is not dependent on what we have, but instead of what we experience.
Host Families provide a caring environment, a bed and meals in return for a lifetime of friendship and learning experiences. ISE accepts single parents, retired couples, families with or without children or anyone that wants to promote peace or "Make A Dream Come True".

We are approaching deadline rather quickly so any help you can offer is much appreciated! We are even seeking welcome families that can host for a few weeks.

We're busy promoting peace... Care to join us?
