4-H International Program is seeking 2019 Host Families

Summer 2019 4-H International Exchange Opportunities!

Have you ever thought about traveling abroad? Are you interested in learning about other cultures and lifestyles? Would you like to make international connections?

If you said yes to any of the above questions, then you should consider participating in the Wisconsin 4-H Summer Homestay Program in 2019!   Every summer, WI 4-H members have the opportunity to stay with a host family for one month in either Costa Rica, South Korea, Finland or Japan. They get the opportunity to learn more about another culture, share their own culture, enhance their confidence and communication skills, as well as build lifelong relationships across the globe!  So, why not enjoy a life changing experience that will help you grow and gain a stronger global awareness.

This opportunity gives youth the chance to travel to a new country and experience a total cultural immersion program by living with volunteer host families. Participants will experience all aspects of their daily life to best understand their new host culture. The program is run through WI 4-H and States 4-H, which have a network of international partners to plan enrichment activities for the delegates abroad, such as cultural excursions, summer group camps and more. Youth are also chaperoned by adult volunteers who stay with other host families in country during the exchange for support or assistance.
