Sue Scheff: Teaching Diversity - Connect Your Family to the World

As a parent, it is important to educate your children about diversity, teaching them to respect and understand other countries and their cultures and customs. Well how would you like to get involved with an organization that builds bonds of friendship and trust with the power to change the world too?

Welcoming a high school foreign exchange student into your home is a great way to increase global awareness for your family, your schools and even across your community.

This month, EF Foundation for Foreign Study is looking for host families for the 2010-2011 school year.  South Florida is a melting pot with many families from all over the world.  It’s wonderful to think that by being a host family, you’d not only be learning about another culture in which you may not be too familiar with, but you’d also be creating a positive view of the United States that crosses oceans and lasts a lifetime.
EF Foundation has:
  • Connected over 100,000 talented, enthusiastic students from 30 countries with caring host families across America
  • Been facilitating foreign exchange for more than 30 years.
  • Connected more students with American host families than any other program of its kind!
Want to hear firsthand how this program has changed lives?
