Host Families sought for International Exchange Students

Original post made by Lillian Clemente, Old Mountain View, on Jul 16, 2010

International high school exchange students are coming to study in the Mountain View area during the 2010-11 school year. These students will integrate themselves into a Mountain View area family with the goal of experiencing American culture as an American high school student does. In turn they will provide insight into their own culture.

STS Foundation, a non profit student exchange organization, is proud to help facilitate these relationships. They have been doing so for more than 20 years and look forward to finding new host families in Mountain View and connecting them with exchange students. Two students STS is looking for host families in the area for this year are Stefan and Pascaline. Stefan is a 16 year old boy from Osnabrueck, Germany. His favorite sport is soccer, which he has played for eleven years at a club in his hometown. He also enjoys playing table tennis and swimming. He is eager to learn about American culture and meet new friends in the United States. Pascaline is a 17 year old girl from Pornichet, France. She loves playing the piano and has played for the past ten years. Pascaline is also very fond of tennis; she has played for four years and enjoys participating in tournaments. She also enjoys handball and badminton and is excited to learn new instruments and sports when she comes to the USA. Pascaline is elated to be realizing her dream of living in the United States and learning a new culture. They are both excellent students and will have their own spending money and health insurance.

The host family provides a separate bed, family meals and a safe environment. If your family is interested in being a host family please call Lillian at 1-800-522-4678 or send an email to For more information visit
