We Need You!

Wisconsin State 4-H is in need of 25 more host families to host delegates this summer from Japan and South Korea. These young boys and girls from Japan and South Korea are anxiously waiting to get to know their new host family and share their culture with you. The focus of the exchange is for the youth to experience everyday American life. Youth ages 12-14 will be placed in homes with children of similar age and same gender. Special trips and tourism is not required!  All you need to provide is a bed, 3 meals a day and a warm welcoming environment for you new family member!

“It was a fun experience and reminded us that people are the same (and different) no matter where they are from. We laughed a lot and learned all about the things make us the same. We also taught each other many things we didn’t know to be true. It was hard to say goodbye.”
