AFS SEEKING HOST FAMILIES
South Milwaukee High School normally has several exchange students through the AFS program, but this year we do not have any! Hosting an exchange student is an amazing opportunity for your family as well as for the school community. Exchange students bring us a different cultural perspective, and we, in turn, share our culture with them.
AFS still has many students who were approved and accepted to the program for this school year, but are unable to come to the U.S. until a family volunteers to host them.
Please consider welcoming an exchange student into your home and family. If you have questions, feel free to talk to one of the many SM staff members who have hosted with AFS in the past, or go to www.afs.org to find out more information and to fill out an application.
"As an exchange student in college, I lived with a host family and am forever grateful for the experience they offered me! I learned from them every day, but most importantly, they gave me a family and a place to call home on the other side of the ocean!" ~Amy Altamirano, SMHS Faculty, Spanish
