Host Families Sought for AFS Exchange Students:

Bring another part of the world to your home! 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.   Students such as these are available:

  • Razaq is from Indonesia and he enjoys running, playing soccer, and entering science competitions;
  • Polly is from Thailand and she enjoys playing the violin, drawing and art, and hopes to become an architect; and
  • Noah is from Switzerland and he enjoys playing soccer, being a soccer referee for little kids, and fishing.

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
