Many of us rpcv's will remain eternally indebted to the families who showed us hospitality and good will by opening their homes to us during our Peace Corps stay, and to the friends and acquaintances who also saw us through linguistic struggles and cultural adjustment during that time. Our experience would have been tremendously diminished had they not been there to assist us and shed light onto their culture.
Why not provide the same opportunities for young visitors to the United States?
Youth for Understanding USA is a non-profit, volunteer based international exchange organization for high school students. We are always looking for enthusiastic and internationally minded volunteers and host families. If you have any interest in hosting or volunteering, please visit our website at www.yfu-usa.org, and give me, Aimee, a call at 336 547 8870 to speak about opportunities here in North Carolina.
