MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A non-profit organization is continuing their efforts to encourage area families to consider hosting an exchange student in their home.
The group is also working to entice American youth to be outbound exchange students as well.
International Experience is an agency that places exchange students from around the world in American homes for the goal of cultural exchange and building lifelong friendships.

She also outlined a new scholarship program for host families with children designed to encourage them to be exchange students themselves in Germany.
