GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A local student exchange program is looking for foreign exchange host families in Pitt County to give them a true American experience.
High school-aged students from France and Spain are coming for the culture-centric program starting the week of July 14. They are looking for active families.
Program director Frederic Fladenmuller has worked with the program for 35 years. He says it is an opportunity beneficial to both the child and the family.
“When you discover not only the language but the culture and all the aspect of all their lives and then you’ll really learn, and then you develop a friendship that you usually don’t give up,” said Fladenmuller.
It is a three-week program after the screening children are matched with a family.
The deadline to apply is July 7.
