Regional Manager, Jennifer Miller recently hosted her teams’ exchange student orientation at a local Pizza Hut. The students were treated to a behind-the-scenes look at how a restaurant operates! It was a great chance for the students to have fun during their orientation by learning how to prepare pizzas, as well as about a real American dining experience.
This season, the Hoosier Hills team in Northwest Indiana is hosting students from Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, France, the Czech Republic, Germany and Brazil. Through their 10-month exchange program, the students will experience American high school life with their volunteer host families.
You can make a difference in a young person’s life by hosting an international exchange student. ISE is a certified non-profit organization founded in 1982 and has provided quality exchange programs for over 30,000 exchange students. We are looking for host families in Northwest Indiana.
Enrich your family, local high school, and community with new ideas and perspectives. International exchange students form a broader view in our education system and help us make it world-class. International student exchange helps globalize United States education.
ISE believes that exchange programs provide a distinct opportunity for personal growth and development, so we strive to bring this experience to as many foreign students and host families as possible. Hosting an international student often leads to the development of deep connections and lasting friendships. As you spend time together, engage in activities, and share experiences, you may form meaningful bonds that can endure beyond their time as a student. It is our goal for this opportunity to bring the people of the world closer together through the relationships created between visiting students, host families and the local community. Check out the enjoyable interview on, “The Times of NWI” in Northwest Indiana.
