Fourteen to seventeen year old foreign exchange students from Europe need hosts for four weeks this summer. All students speak proficient English, have their own spending money and health insurance, and wish nothing more than to be included in their host's activities. Hosts (couples with or without children, singles, etc.) provide room, board, and friendship to their students, whose legal guardian is the sponsoring agency, Nacel Open Door. NOD, a nonprofit high school exchange organization, fully accredited by the Department of State and the Council of Standards of International Educational Travel, screens the students and hosts and provides 24 hour support throughout their stay.
