Host families needed for Peruvian student exchange

An upcoming student exchange program, sponsored by the Snoqualmie Sister Cities Association, will again bring students from Peru to study at Mount Si High School.

Five boys from Chaclacayo, Peru, are still in need of host families in Snoqualmie. That exchange will be from January 24 through February 25.

During the exchange, the SSCA will host field trips during the students’ stay, such as Seattle tours, a Boeing VIP tour, a day in Olympia, and snow tubing. Transportation is provided by the SSCA and sometimes the host family. Weekends are free to be with host families as the exchange students submerge themselves into host family life.

All exchange students will have insurance and spending money.
