Ex-pats interested in hosting an exchange student? (Denver)
I'm new here and thought I might spread the word about how you can get more involved in your local international community in the Colorado/Wyoming area.
I just wanted to pass along the word about some exciting opportunities for anyone looking to host an international student or volunteer to support international high school exchange students in Colorado and Wyoming!
