FARGO — Forte International Exchange Association, a nonprofit that since 2000 has worked to connect international exchange students with host families in the U.S., is seeking families to host international students ages 15-17 for one academic year.

Students from countries such as Spain, Poland, Brazil, Italy, Thailand, France, South Korea, Hungary, Netherlands, Switzerland, Mexico and Germany are looking to take part.

Host families can be married or single adults 25 years or older, with or without children.

Host families can have children in the house or be empty-nesters, and they reflect the diversity of American culture.

Families may select a student that best fits their own family.
