“We are extremely excited to honor these local families,” noted Amy Bryan, International Exchange Coordinator, EF Foundation for Foreign Study. “All of them are new to hosting this year, but they welcomed the students with open arms and have created bonds with them that I am certain will last a lifetime.”
Created in 2003, the President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families and groups who have earned extensive hours of volunteer service over a 12-month period or over the course of a lifetime at home or abroad. The award is designed to thank and honor Americans who, by their demonstrated commitment and example, inspire others to engage in volunteer service.
Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, EF Foundation for Foreign Study is the leader in high school exchange. Committed to promoting international understanding and global awareness for more than 30 years, EF Foundation brings more students to the United States each year than any other high school exchange program. Since 1979, the organization has matched more than 100,000 enthusiastic students from around the world with caring host families across the United States.
