YOUTH EXCHANGE HOST FAMILY
The Winnetka-Northfield Rotary Club seeks volunteer host families to host it's foreign exchange student from Turkey in their home for a period of 3-4 months. The 16 year old female student will be one of 20 Rotary Youth Exchange students hosted from around the world, spending one year in Northeastern Illinois. The host family is to provide room and board and welcome the student into their home, not as a guest, but rather as a member of their own family. The student will arrive in mid-August 2012 and will return home in July 2012 after studying at New Trier High School. Host families must reside anywhere in the New Trier High School District (Winnetka, Wilmette, Kenilworth, Glencoe, East Glenview, Northfield)
