ISE, International Student Exchange, a leading non-profit high school exchange program with a Regional Office based in Babylon, New York, is pleased to announce the promotion of Nanuet resident Scott Walters to the position of Area Representative for the Rockland/Bergen region. Scott brings experience and remarkable enthusiasm to his new position of working with ISE International exchange students. Walters has traveled extensively to various countries (including Canada, Italy, Germany, Austria and China).
He said, “I wonder how many people understand the courage it takes for young teens to come to the United States as an exchange student. It takes a lot of courage and much trust on their parent’s part as well.” Walters continued, “What is in it for you as a host family? As host families, you get to experience another country through our exchange students. You will establish relationships that will span miles and last a lifetime. You learn more about yourselves as individuals when you live with someone that comes from another culture. Hosting an exchange student can enrich your lives immensely.”
For the 2012-2013 school year, ISE International will welcome over 3,000 international students to the U.S. Its central mission is to promote global peace through cross-cultural understanding. Contact Scott at 845-558-1225 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on becoming an ISE International student host family.
