I was so happy to see the wonderful article about Grace Hassard Swann in the May 6th issue. It is a wonderful demonstration of how hosting an exchange student can change not only that student's life, but the lives of everyone in their family and expand their worlds. Obviously this student made a wonderful lasting impression.
I would love for your readers to know that Capac Schools still welcome exchange students and Youth For Understanding still brings them from all over the world. Even though we do not have any Irish students presently, we have them from Germany, Japan, Korea, Norway, Brazil and many other countries. If someone is interested in hosting they can look us up on the web at www.yfu-usa.org or call me directly at 1-800-872-0200 ext. 249. They can bring the world home by hosting a student!
