A visit from a Rotary Youth Exchange student from Bolivia could be in jeopardy if there is not a family willing to host. The Sturgeon Bay Noon Rotary Club is in search of more people to become host families for exchange students, which usually lasts between three to four months. Without a family to host, exchange students that plan on going to one city get placed in another where there are more people available. Outside of preparing an extra plate at the dinner table, the Rotary Club covers most of the expenses during the student’s stay. The club’s incoming president, Sean Linnan, has hosted students at his home in the past. He says it is a gratifying experience.
Families do get their background checked, but Linnan says you do not have to have kids or be a member of Rotary to apply. We have more information on how you can become a host family online with this story.
