Host Families Sought for AFS Exchange Students:

Next school year, some twenty AFS exchange students from around the world will come to Howard County for a life-changing year. Exchange students live in a family such as yours and attend your local HS. Host families volunteer to provide room and board for a student and get to know a great kid and learn more about a different part of our world. Students are available from countries around the world, such as Norway, Italy, Indonesia, India, Japan, Thailand, and Germany and many more. You can pick kids who enjoy hobbies such as singing, playing soccer, baking, manga, or playing music.

If you would like to hear more about the process of becoming a host family or any other aspect of our program, please contact Christina McGarvey at (410) 997-7087 or
