A program run through the State Department has a need for South Georgia families willing to host international exchange students.
The American Councils for International Education picks outstanding high school students from around the world to spend a year in the United States participating in leadership activities.
A couple of those students are prepared to enroll temporarily at Tift County High School, but they need host families in the area first.
Julie King, Correspondent says, "They're not here just to sit around and learn American culture, they are here to dig in and gain leadership qualities that they can take back to their country."
The students need a home here in south Georgia for six weeks to a year.
