4-H seeks area host families

The 4-H International Program has announced that it needs local families to host Japanese exchange students, ages 12 to 16, for four weeks this summer.

The exchange students will stay with their American host families from July 22 to Aug. 18, according to a press release from the organization.

The program is open to families with children close in age to the Japanese participants. Families without children in the age range will be considered to host adult chaperones from Japan.

Host families do not have to be involved with 4-H to help, only willing to share their home and time.

The 4-H International Exchange program is one of the largest exchange programs involving North American and Japanese youth in the world.

Since 1972, more than 45,000 families in the U.S. have hosted youth from Japan, Korea, Finland, Costa Rica and Eurasia ranging in ages from 12 -- 18, and more than 7,000 American youth have made reciprocal visits to Japan, Australia, Finland, Costa Rica, and Norway.
