Are You Interested In Hosting a Foreign Exchange Student?

February 10, 2015

Are you interested in hosting a foreign exchange student for a semester? Among the programs the Galesburg Rotary Club sponsors is a Youth Exchange program. The Galesburg Rotary Club provides assistance and support for High School students in the Galesburg area to travel to live in a foreign country for a year. It also facilitates placements of foreign exchange students who come to the Galesburg area.

Youth Exchange students typically live with 2 host families...one family for the first semester, and a second family for the second semester. In most cases, those students are hosted by families in Galesburg, but if there are two families in Knoxville with an interest in hosting a Foreign Exchange student that could be arranged. One of the requirements is that there be 2 host families from Knoxville to avoid the exchange student having to transfer from Knoxville to another school district.

If you are interested, please contact the Knoxville District Office at 309-289-2328 and we will pass on your information to the Galesburg Rotary Club.
