PAX Seeking Host Families for Exchange Students

Posted on July 20, 2016

The Program of Academic Exchange (PAX) is seeking to recruit host family for international exchange students for the upcoming school year in Montgomery high school. PAX has requested that Montgomery Township share the following letter (this does not constitute a township endorsement):

Dear Montgomery families and friends,

Thanks to you, we have changed the lives of 6 local families and High School Exchange students from all over the world who joined the PAX family last year.

We now invite local families once again to take part in this life changing journey with us. Do you want to change your family and children’s life and the life of an international teen? Need Adventure at home in your own community? PAX – Program of Academic Exchange is looking for loving host families to host an international teen during the 2016-7 academic school year.

PAX welcomes host families of all kinds who would like to share their heart, home and culture with a young person from Brazil, Italy, Spain, Germany, Ukraine, Switzerland or any one of our international students. All PAX students are between the ages of 15 and 18, speak English, have full insurance coverage and come with their own spending money- PAX students arrive in August.

Host families come in all shapes and sizes – young couples, single parents and retirees are all welcome to apply as hosts. Host families provide students with a bed, a quiet place to study (separate bedroom not required), meals, and a warm, supportive environment – Private rooms are not required. Families can expect students to help with household chores and participate in family activities. This is a wonderful chance to make a lifelong friend and help a young person learn more about America. Promote peace and understanding for the world’s future leaders, both American and foreign.
