Exchange Student Host Family Needed  

Multiple Directions

Tabea is a wonderful 16 year old student from Zurich, Switzerland. She is a good student and athlete and has been approved to attend the spring semester at Evergreen High School as a Junior and experience what life is like in the USA. Tabea’s mother language is Swiss German and she speaks German, French and English. Tabea is an avid Handball player and loves sports. She is hoping to join one of the EHS sports teams during her exchange.

Tabea is looking for a family that lets her experience what the life of an American teenager is like with school, studies, sports and friends. Tabea’s family is paying for all school fees, health insurance and they pay to the host family a monthly stipend for food and board.

Benefits of hosting a foreign exchange student:

  • Encourage connection in your home, community and the wider world.
  • Broaden your Horizons.
  • Liven up your daily routine.
  • Enhance your Communication skills.
  • Develop Understanding.
  • Cultivate life-long friendships.
