Indiana Host Families Needed for Two Brazilian Students Arriving in January

Indiana Partners of the Americas, a nonprofit sister state organization with the southernmost state in Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul, seeks an Indiana host family for a Brazilian Youth Ambassador for the 8-week high school youth exchange that Partners sponsors from Jan. 6-Mar. 2, 2007.

The students are one male and one female, 15 and 16 years old, with strong English and academic skills. The boy plays the piano and has musical interests; the girl has experience assisting and mentoring younger children and likes shopping, theater and film.

Both have allergies to cats and, for this reason, require a change of previously-assigned host families.

If you are interested in helping with hosting a Youth Ambassasdor, please contact Jhani Laupus, Partners Youth Ambassador Coordinator, by email or telephone (317/257-2333).

Indiana Partners of the Americas is a member of the Nationalities Council of Indiana.
