Host a Boise High international student!

We just received the following request from those coordinating international exchange students for the 2011-2012 school year. If you can host, please contact Becky Showman at the below number. Thank you!

Hi all,

I am writing to current and former AFS host families, liaisons, and students in the Boise High area to ask if you have any ideas for a potential host family. Just last Friday the administration at Boise High gave AFS permission to place an additional student for the upcoming school year. I have a couple of leads but am not having much luck connecting with them. I am hoping that you all could read the attached student bio and see if any of your acquaintances would possibly have similar interests of this student. The student is Moritz from Germany and he is a CB scholarship winner, he is 16 years old and likes scouting, soccer and jogging. CB is a program between the U.S. & German governments. These scholarship winners go through a very tough competition and the winners receive their program fees paid 100%. I really need to place this particular student so that we can complete our CB cluster group. We must place three CB students in fairly close proximity and to date we have placed two. In order for these other two placements to be viable the third must be placed.

Feel free to share this information with others and/or let me know if you have any friends-neighbors that I could contact.

I appreciate any help you can offer. Thanks.
