Korea

Korea 4-H has asked States’ 4-H International if their youth could visit Michigan for one month during the summer.  Youth will be 12-18 years of age.  They will be here the same time as our Japanese delegation, July to August.  We match your child with a Korean delegate within three years of age and same gender.  The delegates may share a room with same gender matched sibling.  Apply now! Only 10 delegates will be arriving.  Go to www.states4hexchange.org to apply.

HOSTING PERIOD: July 20 to August 20, 2019

  • 12-18 years old or adult chaperones
  • Youth have limited English language skills, and host families should be prepared to communicate imaginatively

HOST FAMILY REQUIREMENTS

  • You must have a child of the same gender and within 3 years of the hosted youth
  • Families without children of the appropriate age may host an adult chaperone
  • No special activities need to be planned, these youth want to experience American culture, make new friends, and improve their English by staying with your family
  • Volunteer to participate in the program
  • You don’t need to be involved with 4-H to host
