Host families sought for international exchange students

aspectStudents at Lynnwood High School will get an extra lesson in geography this year when they welcome Eleonora, an international exchange student from Italy.

Eleonora arrived Lynnwood last weekend to live with a local host family and experience the American way of life for an academic year. Eleonora is sponsored by Aspect Foundation, a non-profit organization that strives to bridge cultures through international youth exchange.

Aspect Foundation is always seeking more families who want the experience of hosting an international student. Exchange students are aged 15 to 18, speak English, and have their own spending money and insurance. Volunteer host families provide room, board, and a loving home environment for a semester or academic year.

For more information about hosting an Aspect Foundation international exchange student, call Eileen Rossignol at 425-318-0441, the Aspect Foundation national office at 1-800-US-YOUTH or visit
