Host and exchange student this summer

You may not be able to explore the world this summer but you can bring a part of the world to your door by hosting a Lions Youth Exchange student from July 6 to 20. This is a cultural exchange to increase world understanding and establish friendships.

Students range in age from 16 to 19. Boys needing host families are from Israel, Italy and Switzerland. Girls are from Germany, Israel, Italy and the Netherlands. If this piques your interest for July, please contact Lion Leal Portis at 530-265-3887.
