Hello! My name is Emily and I am a Global Buddy with World Link. When I was in the seventh grade, we hosted a Ukrainian student with World Link.
World Link veteran host mom Theresa Gittleman (Colorado) watched student after student plan and implement life changing projects for Global Youth Service Day.
The Zahrt family of Adel, Iowa had a wonderful experience hosting FLEX student Nadya Siletskaya, from St. Petersburg Russia, during the 2012-2013 school year.
When you host an exchange student, many times that student’s natural family becomes your own.
I can’t tell you how happy we are to be a part of the FLEX and YES family.
A coworker of mine, Margie Wilhelm, who is also a coordinator for World Link, happened to stop by my office and shared with me that she was looking for a host family for a bright young lady from Kazakhstan.
