The club hosts Karen throughout the year, but we are also looking for host families for Karen to live with while she is here.  With the Rotary Youth Exchange program, Karen would become part of your family and live in your home for up to 3 months. 

Being a host family is a very rewarding experience for the student AND for the family that hosts.  Rotary exchange students are selected for the program because they want to learn about and engage in another culture.  Karen has begun immersing herself in American culture and hopes to experience different family dynamics and experiences while in Minnesota.  A rotary exchange student becomes one of the family and is expected to assist with household chores, attend family events and become part of the everyday happenings of a home.  

If you are interested in hosting Karen and being part of this young lady's great experience in Minnesota, please contact Carla Hansen at or 763-504-9679.
