Ayusa seeks exchange student hosts in Lee’s Summit

July 3, 2014 

AYUSA International, a non-profit organization, recently launched its 31st annual search for families in Missouri interested in hosting international students for the 2014-2015 school year.

AYUSA is looking for Missouri host families specifically in Lee’s Summit. AYUSA stands for Academic Year in the USA.

Host families provide three meals a day and a bedroom (either private or shared). Each exchange student is supported by a professionally trained local representative from AYUSA who works closely with the family, student and local school throughout the program.

AYUSA’s exchange students are 15-18 years old and come from more than 60 countries around the world, including Brazil, Japan, Germany, Ecuador, France, Peru, Morocco, China, and Spain. All students are fully insured, bring their own spending money, and are proficient in English.

Families interested in learning more about hosting a foreign exchange student can visit www.ayusa.org or call 1-888-552-9872.
