For the 2018-2019 academic year, Wabash Valley College will be welcoming students through the Youth for Understanding International Exchange Student program. If your family loves to travel and experience other cultures and languages, while making the difference in the life of a student, then being a YFU host family might be just right for you!
YFU students arrive late August with their own spending money and excellent health insurance coverage. If they choose to drive, they will purchase their own vehicle, car insurance, etc. Host families provide room and board and a loving and welcoming home environment for their student. As a host family, you are well prepared for your host family experience with orientations, and you and your student have the support from the college campus coordinator throughout the year, as needed. As a host family, you would receive a monthly reimbursement toward the expense of having a student in your home.
WVC is seeking host families, and the International Office would be very happy to share with you more information about these fine students and/or the host family experience. Please consider how your family might “welcome the world home” by being a YFU host family. If interested, please call Terri Harris or Tracy Robinson at Wabash Valley College, 618-262-8641
