Belize Summer Exchange

March 7, 2017

In the summer of 2018, Belize delegates have decided to travel to Michigan.  

HOSTING PERIOD: June 19-July 10, 2018

  • High-school age youth and adult chaperones
  • Delegates will participate in 4-H Exploration Days, June 20-22, 2018
  • No language barrier -  English is spoken in Belize!


  • 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 and make new friends
  • Belize exchange is most interested in a Farm to Farm exchange.  Host families with Agricultural connections are strongly encouraged.
  • Volunteer to participate in the program 
  • You don’t need to be involved with 4-H to host, but we ask you to complete Michigan Volunteer Selection Process and register for 4-H as part of our hosting process.
For more information, contact your state coordinator, D’Ann Rohrer at or 231-845-3361.

Please note: Host family selection is dependent on completion of an application and screening process as well as student availability and personality compatibility.
