(SALEM, Ore.) - International high school exchange students are coming to study in the Salem area during the 2010-11 school year. These students will integrate themselves into a Salem area family with the goal of experiencing American culture as an American high school student does. In turn they will provide insight into their own culture.

STS Foundation, a non profit student exchange organization, is proud to help facilitate these relationships. They have been doing so for more than 20 years and look forward to finding new host families in Salem and connecting them with exchange students.

Two students STS is looking for host families in the area for this year are Mark and Georgia. Mark is a 17-year old boy from Miskok, Hungary. His favorite sport is basketball, which he has played for nine years at a club in his hometown. History and English are his favorite subjects at school and he says he is eager to know the American way of life.

Georgia is a 17-year old girl from Mitcham, Australia. She loves playing soccer and has played for the past eleven years for various clubs in her hometown. She is also fond of creative writing and art; she is excited to meet new friends in the United States.

They are both excellent students and will have their own spending money and health insurance.

The host family provides a separate bed, family meals and a safe environment. If your family is interested in being a host family please call Lillian at 1-800-522-4678 or send an email to lillian@stsfoundation.org. For more information visit stsfoundation.org
