Host a German exchange student through ACC International Programs

ACC International Programs is searching for a host family for the 2014-15 school year for a German student participating in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals (CBYX).

CBYX has connected German students with American host families for more than 28 years. ACC has participated in the program for 14 years.

The student is a 22-year-old English-speaking female who enjoys travel, cooking, and meeting people, and competes in gymnastics.

The host family must be willing to welcome the student into their home for the entire academic year, and provide room and board. The host family is eligible for a monthly stipend of up to $225 to offset room and board costs.

“A host family will have the opportunity to develop a close relationship with the exchange student, learn about her country, and help her learn about life in the U.S.,” says William Hayden, director of International Programs.

For more information about being a host family, contact Maite Whiting at (512) 223.7114 or mwhiting@austincc.edu.
