Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX)

The International Center of the Capital Region is facilitating placement of these exchange students through the Future Leaders Exchange Program (FLEX) under the auspices of the U.S. Department of State.
Host families can include single parents, retirees, empty nesters, individuals, domestic partners, couples with no children, or parents with young or teenage children. To host a FLEX student, hosts need only to provide a bed (shared room is okay), a quiet place to study, meals and transportation to/from school activities.
Students are from the Eurasian countries of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, and Ukraine. Click on “Meet our FLEX Students” - http://blogs.worldlearning.org/flex/about-us/
Hosting a FLEX student is an incredible way to expose your family and community to new cultures and to leave a lasting positive impression of the US on the future leaders of the region. We welcome your help in this exciting new program we are undertaking!
