A local non-profit exchange program is inviting local Brazil families to host international exchange students for the 2011-12 school year.
The teenage students come from more than 30 countries and will attend local high schools.
The students have their own spending money and insurance.
Host families are responsible for meals, a place to sleep and a nurturing environment.
The STS Foundation will have a local coordinator who will supervise the student and support the family throughout the school year.
