Host families sought for ex-Soviet teens

The SHARE! High School Exchange Program is planning to bring 50 teens
from the former Soviet Union to the U.S. as exchange students in
2004-05, and is seeking host families from this region.

This will be the first time that the students will be placed with
volunteer host families in Southeastern Pennsylvania, officials the
organization said.

The students are high-achieving teens from countries such as Russia,
Ukraine, Kazahkstan, Armenia, Belarus, Azerbaijan and several others.

For more information about hosting a student from the former Soviet
Union, call Brenda Hornberger at 445-6654 or the organization’s
national office toll-free at 1-800-321-3737.
