Bath area host families needed Foreign high school students are scheduled to arrive soon for academic semester program home- stays, and the sponsoring organi- zation needs a few more local host families. According to Pacific Intercul- tural Exchange (P.I.E.) Executive Director, John Doty, the students are all between the ages of 15 and 18 years, are English speaking, have there own spending money, carry accident and health insur- ance, and are anxious to share there cultural experiences with there new American families. P.I.E. currently has programs to match almost every family's needs, ranging in length from a semester to a full academic year, where the students attend local high schools. P.I.E. area representatives match students with host families by finding common interest and lifestyles through an informal in- home meeting. Prospective host families are available to review student applications and select the perfect match. As there are no "typical" host families, P.I.E. can fit a student into just about any situation, whether it be a singal parent, a childless couple, a re- tired couple or a large family. ,: Families who host for P.I.E are also eligible to claim a $50.00 per month charitable contribution de, duction on their itemized tax re- turns for each mounth they host a student. For the upcoming programs, P.I.E. has students from Germa- ny, the former Soviet Union ,Ven- ezuela, Argentina, Brazil, Finland, Hungary, Korea Switzerland, Mexico, Italy, Paraguay, Austra- lia, Yugoslavia, China, Belgium, Vietnam and many other coun- tries. P.I.E. has also been invited to participate in a special govern- ment-funded program to bring scholarship students from Newly Independent States of the former Soviet Union to the United States. P.I.E. is non-profit educational organization that has sponsored more than 20,000 students from 40 countries since it's founding in 1975. The organization is designed by the United States Department of State and is listed by the Coun- cil on Standards for International Trail (CSIET), certifying that the organizati6i conlies with the Science Expo 2003  These stu- dents appeared recently at the Old Courthouse, in Owingsville, with their Science Fair presentation, put together entirely by the students. The meeting was well attended, with parents, teachers, and standards set forth in CSIET's Standards for International Edu- cational Travel Programs. Doty encourages families to contact the program immediately, as it will allow the proper time for the students and host to get to know one another before they ac- tually meet for the first time. Bath area families interested in learning more about student ex- change or arranging for a meeting with a community representative may call P.I.E.. toll free 1-800- 631-1818. The agency also has travel/study program opportuni- ties available for American high school students as well as possi- bilities for community volunteers to assist and work with area host families, students and schools. r Keep reading this newspaper and stay informed! friends gathered to cheer the students on.
