Post: Bring Diversity to KY Classrooms
Posted by Barbara :Y. Wills on 7/22/06
Dear Fellow Educators:
Time is running out to bring an AFS foreign exchange
student into your home, school and community for the
comming school year. Several AFS students assigned to the
Miss Tennky AFS Volunteer Leadership Team area still need
placements for the fall. Those students needing placements
are from Thailand (2 females and 1 male) and the
Netherlands (1 male). They are all good students and have
good English skills. They are eager to find families who
are willing to share their hearts and homes with them. They
can attend any public or private school with the principal's
Please, call Nadia Clendending at 1-800-876-2377, Ext 118,
to be sure which students are still available and to get a
copy of the bios ASAP. The students are scheduled to
arrive by August 9th. Their families must know where they
will be living before they leave their native countries.
You may fill out a prelimary application on line at
www.afs.org/usa. If you can not host for the year, but can
be a welcome family until a permanent family can be found,
this would be great as well.
Make a move to make a difference and help spread global
peace and understanding.
