The Council on International Educational Exchange is looking for local families to host international high school students for an academic school year. An informational seminar will be held at 6 p.m. Aug. 20 at the Swasey Branch of the Tacoma Public Library, 7001 Sixth Ave.
More than 1,400 CIEE students come from all over the globe and are eager to learn about the U.S. and become part of an American family, community and school.
Students live with host families and attend school. Participants are between 15 and 18 years old, have studied English for a minimum of three years, have their own medical insurance and spending money. Host families receive a monthly stipend to offset expenses.
