Summer hosting finished for 2016 with lots of great memories made!

This summer Wisconsin 4-H International Programs hosted students from Costa Rica, Mexico, Finland, Japan and Korea. Although there were some challenges along the way fun was had by all! The experience is best captured in these quotes from our 2016 host families:

“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.”

“For years to come, [we] will continue to share this experience for life. From hosting as a young child on the Labo exchange to being a 4-H exchange, to Labo intern for a year, to hosting now four times, it is a life changing experience you’ll never forget and will share with your own offspring and family.”

Thank you all families that hosted this summer!
