There is a group of ORCA Exchange Students coming from France June 12 - July 6th. 3 boys and 2 girls ages 15 - 16. They all speak some English (there is a chaperon that is fluent that comes with them, she stays with the organizer) so the host family would not need to speak French. The students come with their own spending money and medical insurance. If you would like to host a student or know some one who would like to, they can live with in 150 miles of Billings. The main reason for them coming to the US is to experience the American teenage way of life and practice their own English. If you want more information, please call Jan Pursell at 670-8137 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
