Host Families Urgently Needed for Exchange Student

Coudersport Rotary is currently seeking host families for our next exchange student, Felipe Herrera from Chile. He is due to arrive in the Coudersport area in August. Host families may serve for a portion or all of the school year. Felipe is an active 16 year old boy who enjoys sports, especially soccer, and music. Families and single parents from the Coudersport, Ulysses, Shinglehouse and Austin areas are invited to apply as host parents. Felipe would be enrolled as a student in the school district served by the host families.

Host families furnish room and board, and are encouraged to treat the exchange student as a member of the family. Rotary furnishes spending money, counseling as needed, and guidance. This is a unique chance for Potter County families to share our rural lifestyle and hospitality with a foreign student, and also to learn about the culture and customs of another country. Felipe speaks good English and is anxious to meet new people and make new friendships in our country.

Don’t miss this chance for your family to take part in this unique experience. Coudersport Rotary has sent many local students overseas, and hosted children from around the world with excellent results. Please contact John Leete at 274-7878 or Nancy Grupp at 274-8565 soon to learn more about being a host parent or family
