Coudersport Rotary Seeking Host Families For Spanish Exchange Student

Coudersport Rotary Seeking Host Families For Spanish Exchange Student

As part of our club’s long history of involvement with youth exchange programs, we are pleased to announce that Victoria Garcia, a resident of Spain, will be joining us for the 2103-2114 school year.

Victoria is 15 years old and is an accomplished musician. She also likes sports and science. Her parents are chemists. She is from Sabinanigo, a town of 10,000 located in the Pyrenees Mountains near the French border. She is an animal lover and has a dog. Her background indicates that she is both an intelligent and reliable young woman.

Coudersport Rotary is seeking two host families for Victoria. She would be with the first family until January and with the second family until June. Victoria will be attending Coudersport Area Jr. Sr. High School.

While she speaks English, she is anxious to sharpen her language skills, and to see small town American life, she is also wants to be part of an American family and learn about our country.
Being a host family has many benefits as well. Here is a unique opportunity to learn about Spain, its culture, and language through Victoria. The host family provides room and board for the student, and is expected to include the student in family and community activities. Rotary furnishes health insurance, spending money, as well as ongoing guidance and advice. A Rotary counselor is available to provide assistance as needed to both the student and host family.
Coudersport Rotary is also sponsoring CHS student Michaela Keating as an outbound exchange student to Germany. She will be leaving Coudersport in August to meet her first German host family.

The Rotary Exchange Student Program is one of the largest and least expensive programs of its type in the world. We have sent local students to Germany, France, Italy, and Thailand in recent years, and we have hosted students from the Dominican Republic, Peru, Germany, Thailand, Poland, and France, among other countries.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to share your family, community, and country with this young visitor. Here is a special chance to show Victoria what we are all about, and to learn a great deal in the process. Many times a family-like relationship between foreign students and host families goes on for years after the exchange is over. Interested parties should contact John Leete at 274-7878 or Melissa Gee at 544-7315
