The upcoming student exchange program, which will bring students from Korea and Peru to study at Mount Si High School, is short four host families, according to a press release from the city of Snoqualmie.

Three boys from Gangjin, Korea and one boy from Chaclacayo, Peru still need homes for this program that is scheduled to begin in January.

The press release asked citizens to please volunteer to be a home away from home. This can be a life changing experience for the student and your family alike.

The Korean program runs Jan. 8 – Feb. 3, and the Peruvian program will be from Jan. 17 – Feb. 24, according to the press release.

During the exchange, the Snoqualmie Sister Cities Association hosts field trips, such as Seattle tours, a Boeing VIP tour, a day in Olympia and snow tubing. Transportation is provided by the SSCA and sometimes the host family. Weekends are free to be with host families. Exchange students submerge themselves into host family life. All exchange students will have insurance and spending money, according to the press release.
