Open your heart and home to a Lutheran exchange student from Germany for the coming 2015-2016 school year!

Sharing the life of an American host family and going to school contributes to a better world understanding and is an unforgettable experience for both the student and the host family. American students benefit from meeting  foreign students.

children_5918cVolunteer host families (with or without children) as well as single people are needed to provide food, a bed and a loving home for the coming school year, one or two semesters, starting in August.  EMF students have medical insurance, spending money for their personal expenses and expect to share their host family’s daily life including household responsibilities.  They speak English, are well-screened and eager to experience life in America.  Their stay here is sponsored and supervised by EMF (Educational Merit Foundation), a non-profit, educational exchange program. It is not too late to apply. For more information on EMF students, please call Marie-Claude Dijoud now at 1-800-467-8363 or visit our web site at

Thank you very much for your help! These students are anxious to learn that a home has been found for them.  Your contribution to this cause is most appreciated. Please help us make their dream come true!

Kind regards,

Marie-Claude Dijoud, Program Director
