Open your door and the world will come to you. Welcoming an exchange student into your home is a great way to explore another culture through international connection. When you become a host, you are allowing an international high school student to become a part of your family while they study at a Marana Unified School District high school.
The Marana Unified School District has entered into a partnership with My American Year, an international non-profit U.S. based organization. As part of this partnership, My American Year is currently looking for families who are interested in hosting students for the 2013-2014 school year.
By being a host family, you will aid the student in adjusting to a new culture, make new friends and practice a new language. The experiences that you will share and the life lessons learned will remain with your student for the rest of their lives. The memories you make will always be connected across continents.
If you have interest in becoming a host family, please contact Nancy Thorpe at (520) 616-6400, extension 5669 or N.J.Thorpe@maranausd.org.
