     EF Foundation for Foreign Study, a not-for-profit organization based in Cambridge, is looking for terrific host families on Cape Cod to take in international exchange students for the 2013-14 school year.
     The students already bound for Cape Cod in the fall will be attending Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High and Cape Cod Tech, and other area schools such as Barnstable High have been contacted about the possibility of taking exchange students.
     Please consider hosting a student or be thinking of anyone you might know that would be willing to take in a great kid for the upcoming school year. Host families are not paid, per State Department rules, but they get a generous tax deduction. Host families are essentially responsible for providing food and shelter for students during their school year in the U.S., and for treating these fantastic kids like members of their own family and including them in family and community activities. Exchange students will have their own spending money, attend local high schools, and get involved in extracurricular activities.
     Students hail from Italy, Spain, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Taiwan and Korea, to name but a few. These kids are all terrific students who have gone through a rigorous application and screening process. Host families can look through numerous student profiles until they find a student that’s the best fit for the family. The international exchange coordinators in the area will provide support and helpful information for the students, families and schools throughout the school year.
     Here is a link to more information and FAQs about becoming a host family: In addition, there is a $250 cash incentive involved for anyone who refers a family to EF Foundation for Foreign Study and that family ends up hosting. Here is a link for the referral bonus:
