NORTHFIELD, Minn., Feb. 12, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- International Experience (iE-USA) announced today that visiting students, ages 15-18, from around the world are seeking host families for the upcoming 2015-2016 academic school year. Host families are needed for the fall semester and full school year.

Exchange student participants come from many countries including Germany, Spain, Switzerland, and Thailand.

Host families (traditional families, singles, empty nesters, etc.) serve as mentors and a home base for their student. Visiting students participate as active members of the family and integrate into their host's daily routines and traditions just like any other family member. Hosting an international student is a great way to explore a new culture and promote a sense of lifelong learning and adventure.

"Every year our state plays host to many talented, top-of-their-class students with the lifelong dream of studying in America," says Emily Rolin, iE-USA's Area Director. "A spirit of hospitality and focus on academic enrichment makes our state an ideal environment to develop international diplomacy on a local level and nurture cultural student exchange."

iE-USA, the sponsoring program, is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to promoting education and understanding through intercultural and academic exchange. iE-USA is certified by the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET) and strictly adheres to all U.S. Department of State Student Exchange Program regulations and guidelines.

Exchange student participants undergo an extensive application and orientation process in their home country prior to being accepted into iE-USA's program. Each student is responsible for his/her own spending money and full health insurance coverage.
