Experience the cultural richness of the world at home this summer.

Washington 4-H International Exchange offers families the opportunity to host a youth delegate from Japan for a four-week homestay. Youth delegates are ages 12-17 and eager to make new friends, improve their English, share their culture and experience real American family life in Washington.

Host families need to have a child of the same gender, who is within three to four years of the delegate’s age, and provide a bed and meals. No special activities are required, and host families do not need to be members of 4-H.

Do you have room in your life this summer for an amazing cultural experience? Apply online to be a 4-H International Exchange Host Family at
