Short-Term Hosts Needed for Exchange Students!

WorldOregon (formerly World Affairs Council of Oregon) is excited to welcome two youth exchange programs this year: the Pan-Africa Youth Leadership Exchange Program (PAYLP) from August 8-21, with students from Benin, Burkina Faso, Repub

lic of Congo, Gabon and Togo, and the Youth Ambassadress Program October 11-22, with students from Bolivia and Peru. These young leaders (ages 15-17) will come to Portland to learn about Leadership, civic engagement, and U.S. cultures. We are currently seeking hosts for these youth for the duration of their stay in Portland. For the Pan-Africa program, at least one person in the host household should speak conversational French.

This is a one-of-a-kind chance to meet a visitor from another country, practice language skills, learn about another culture, and make a lifelong friend.

Please contact me at laura@worldoregon.org or by phone at (503) 306-5244 if you or your students/families have any questions at all. Thank you very much for your time!
