Reading Riot: TAG Welcomes Foreign Exchange Students
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a teen in another country? Now’s your chance to meet foreign exchange students and welcome them to our community.
The Bealeton Teen Advisory Group is hosting a social event to meet and greet exchange students who are currently attending area high schools. The students from various countries including Spain, Brazil and China will make short presentations about the culture and lifestyle of their home country. You can learn what the exchange program is all about and even learn how to become a host family. After the presentations, there will be time for questions and mingling. Light refreshments will be served.
The United Studies Student Exchange (USSE) brings students to America from all over the world and is dedicated to building bridges of understanding through cultural and educational exchange. Each year, USSE hosts English-speaking students who come to learn in American high schools and to live with every-day American families. Do you have a genuine interest in other countries, languages and the desire to build lasting friendships? You can be a host family!
For students 6th grade and up. Parents are welcome too!
4 p.m. Tuesday, November 10 @ Bealeton branch library
