POTSDAM -- The International Student Exchange seeks volunteers to house foreign exchange students.

SUNY Potsdam Student Tarasa Lewis, who works for the ISE, said there are six girls ages 15-17 from Brazil, South Korea looking for host families.

Lewis says each student comes with their own money, insurance and can speak and understand English. “They just need a host family to provide basic room and board and extra plate at the dinner table,” she said.

Host families are all ages and very from single family to retiree’s. No family situation is discriminated against.

The International Student Exchange is in no way affiliated with SUNY Potsdam.
