The Star’s Youth2 has just reported on an amazing opportunity for Malaysian youths wishing to experience American culture one-on-one.
AFS Malaysia and the US State Department have come together to give Malaysian students aged 15-18 (and disabled Malaysian students 15-17) the opportunity to take part in a six-month intercultural exchange to the United States. You’ll get to stay with American families and experience the culture first-hand.
Best of all, there is a full scholarship!
I’ve lived with American host families before (through Up With People and they are amazing people. So friendly, so warm, and often a brilliant learning experience. They weren’t hung up about what culture you are or where you’re from; they were willing to teach and learn. Indeed, they become family to you! I have no doubt that anyone who participates in this program will have a great time.
The closing date is 31st May 2006 so hurry!
