Host families needed in Ogden Community School District

Local World Link Coordinator Diana Bowman’s grandsons Liam, Brendan, and Harry pose with exchange student Edya when she was in the US in 2015-2016.

World Link Inc. is actively searching for two families in the Ogden Community School District to host an international exchange student for 2019-2020 school year. Families who apply are asked to be able to provide a nurturing environment, three meals a day, reliable transportation to school and program events, and an individual bed for the student to sleep in. All types of families are welcome to apply; selected families must pass the approval process.

World Link has been helping to place students with host families since 2002. They conduct government-sponsored programs to make sure students are selected based on merit instead of their ability to pay. World Link also focuses on the “family style” element of their organization, which offers local coordinators who are able to personally assist families during the application and exchange processes.
