Rotary Youth Exchange - Host Family Sought
Batavia will once again be hosting a youth exchange student during the 2017-2018 school year.  If you are interested in being a host family, please see the information below:

The Batavia Rotary Club has a girl coming from Poland in August as our next exchange student. I am looking for our first host family, and a second one. It is critical to line up the first one now so she can get her VISA, etc. There is a lot of governmental paper work required to get her here in time for the start of school. The families should be in the Batavia School District, or be able to get her to and from school daily.  It is really awesome to host, we have done it many times. I can honestly say my life has changed for the better through hosting.
The process:
1. I do an in-home interview explaining the program
2. Ask potential host family to fill out an online application.
3. Run background checks on all residents over 18yo
4. Ask for and contact several references
5. Upon acceptance, conduct an in-home training session on being a host family.
6. Welcome their new daughter into the home.
