Three additional host families are needed in August when 15 French students arrive in Nevada County through the World Exchange program.

The students range in age 15-17, are fairly fluent in English, come fully insured and have their own spending money.

The nonprofit World Exchange program matches thoroughly screened students with local families who cite a variety of reasons for hosting: To improve their own children’s language skills, to learn how foreign teenagers view the world, to learn new skills or expose children to students to a different culture.

Students arrive late Aug. 1 and leave Aug. 20.
