Exchange Students

Above and Beyond Education (ABN), a non-profit high school organization, is currently looking for volunteer host families to participate in its high school cultural exchange program.

Students who participate in the ABN Education have their own spending money, are fully insured, and attend local high schools in order to learn more about the American culture, make friends, participate in sports, student activities, volunteer in the local community, and most of all, become a lasting member of your family and community.
