CANCELLED - Interested in Hosting an International Exchange Student
Unfortunately, due to the situation with Covid-19, all 4-H International Exchange trips (inbound and outbound) have been cancelled for 2020 for the first time in 48 years. The direct link to the information can be found here: 2020 NC 4-H International Exchange (https://nc4h.ces.ncsu.edu/youth-3/nc-4-h-international-exchange-program/)
Specifics to the requirements for who can host, who is eligible, and other important criteria for hosting can be found on the website!
Costa Rica Inbound
Applications for host families to host youth or chaperone from Costa Rica are DUE MARCH 1st!
Visits are usually mid-June to mid-July.
We will be hosting 12 Japanese delegates in North Carolina and a Japanese chaperone this coming summer. Applications for the Japanese program are DUE by May 22nd!
Hosting dates for the Japanese delegates are July 25th through August 22nd.
We do have at least one Forsyth County family that is interested in hosting a Japanese student this summer. It's more fun when we have multiple youth stay in the county. Please let us know if you're interested in hosting. We can also put you in touch with families that hosted last year if you would like to hear about their experiences.
