Local Families Needed For Exchange Students

PEACE, Inc. (Pro-American Educational and Cultural Exchange), a non-profit organization placing foreign high school students with volunteer local families is currently looking for volunteer host families in the local area.

PEACE, Inc. is the leading non-profit sponsor of J-1 exchange students and has been developing rewarding relationships between international students and their families, schools, and communities since 1968. PEACE, Inc. places students from many countries for semester-long and year-long academic programs.

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

Anyone interested in hosting or for more information, contact Carol Berger by e-mail at or call 209-360-4553. You may also call the PEACE, Inc. office at 800-377-2232. Visit the website,
