San Tan Valley resident, Charla Rodgers, is interviewing area families interested in participating in a cultural exchange experience by hosting an international high school student for the coming academic year.
Charla serves as Community Coordinator for PAX, a non-profit foundation which provides a US high school and homestay program for students from over 40 different countries including Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America.
PAX students are between the ages of 15 and 18, speak English, have full insurance coverage and their own spending money.
Students from different countries look forward to living like American teens for one school year; joining sports teams, studying for exams, and participating fully in family life.
PAX families are asked to provide students with meals, a place to sleep and study, and a warm supportive environment.
