Brownstown Host Families Sought for International Students

Now more than ever, it is important to understand the world beyond our borders. Families in Brownstown and the surrounding area can do just that, by becoming involved in a global cultural exchange through the Aspect Foundation.

Interested families can participate by volunteering to host an Aspect Foundation international high school student for a semester or academic year.

Aspect Foundation students hail from nearly 30 different countries but all share the same dream – to experience the American way of life. These students, who would arrive in August, are aged 15 to 18 and have a wide variety of interests and abilities. They are chosen on the basis of maturity, grades, and language skills.

Host families can be married or single, with or without children. Host families are responsible for providing room, board and a loving home environment for the student. In return, host families and exchange students learn about another culture firsthand, and gain a second family for life! Potential host families can choose their own student by viewing student profiles on Aspect Foundation’s website at

Aspect Foundation is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1985 and is dedicated to excellence in youth exchange.
