It's time to re-examine how we meet this object; from a distance as twin clubs, or in our homes, one-on-one, by hosting an exchanges student for a semester, a shool year, or as a welcome host. Contact Lion Sam Mensah or Kathleen or Dan Holland, Regional Coordinators at EFexchangeYear.org. Bring the World into Your Family!
