The students, ages 12 to 17, have medical coverage and spending money and have studied English for at least three years. Planned activities for the students include trips to area attractions, picnics, parties and a soccer game between the English and French. Area support groups are formed to provide transportation when no specific activities are planned. Tuition credits are available through the program for travel abroad. The International Education Forum provides orientation and support for host families and students. Call Marge or Walt at 726-5896.
