About 5 years ago we had 5 exchange students, one of those was a girl from Japan.  During her inbound orientation in early September, she said maybe 3 words and only if asked.  A very shy and quite person. In October, we took the exchange students to the Texas State Fair.  Expecting our Japanese girl to be shy and might need some help in fitting in on this event we were blown away to have her talking up a storm with our Austrian exchange student. Rotary Youth Exchange is amazing program that is enjoyable & enlightening for both the student and host family!
We need a host families for an inbound exchange student, a girl arriving from France in late AugustIf you happen to know these previous host families, Bill Moser, Fritzie Roop and Toni Collins, you know that their time hosting has been very positive.
The commitment is:
   .    Approximately 4 months of hosting the student
            These are high school aged students 16 - 18 years old
            Students arrive in late August
            Ideally each student would have 2 host families
            We like to move the student in the January/February timeframe to the next host family
   .    Providing transportation for the student to get back and forth to school each day
   .    Provide a bedroom with bed and area to study
   .    Provide meals
   .    Provide a kind and loving home 
Once the vetting process is completed you will be given access to the student's detail information. For more information, contact Michael Pugh. 

We need additional District level committee members to help with the Rotary Youth Exchange program.  Anyone interested, please contact us can contact Michael Pugh 214.693.8025 or Sam Zarro 469.682.3577.
