Sandra Burgers with Academic Year in America passed along the following note that the organization is still looking for SM East area host families for exchange students for the 2015-16 school year:

Academic Year In America is looking for host families in the Shawnee Mission East area for the 2015-16 school year to open their homes and hearts to an exchange student or two. The school year begins soon but it’s not too late. Students come with their own spending money and health insurance. Host families are responsible for providing a bed for the student, as well as either a room that is shared with a host brother or sister of the same sex and within a couple of years of age as well as meals. Host parent(s) must be at least 25 years old. Families come in all ages and sizes including singles. If you are interested please contact Sandy Burgers at 913-787-4553. Sandy is a former East parent, host parent, parent of a former study abroad student, coordinator, and lives right in the area. She is always available for support and willing to assist whenever possible. For more information check out www.acadimicyear.org or give Sandy a call. Let’s work together to bring the world together.
