Local families are needed to host Japanese exchange students, ages 12-18, for four weeks this summer as part of a two-way exchange program sponsored by 4-H.
The Japanese teenagers will stay with their American host families from July 23 to Aug. 19.
The program is open to families with children close in age to the Japanese participants. Families without children in this age range will be considered as hosts for the adult chaperones from Japan.
Information about the 2007 Japanese Exchange Students may be found at the Web site: www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/fourh/labo/.
Host applications and brochures about the program are available through 4-H, North Carolina Cooperative Extension Lincoln County Center at 115 W. Main St. in Lincolnton.
Questions may be directed to April Dillon, Extension Agent, 4-H Youth Development, Lincoln County at (704) 736-8458.
