Professional Exchange Program Seeks Host Families

Published on Fri, August 07, 2009

Marywood University's Professional International Exchange Program (MPIX) will welcome three female international professionals as part of a four-month exchange program this fall. MPIX, under the Council of International Programs USA, brings well qualified professionals to the United States for practical training experiences. The program is now seeking families to host exchange participants from Germany and Turkey for a four-week period. Either single individuals or families may take advantage of this hosting opportunity.

During their stay, the professionals will fill internships with Lackawanna County Children and Youth Services, United Way, and Friendship House.

In addition to providing valuable sharing and learning opportunities for both international participants and area agencies, MPIX offers host families a chance to enjoy rich multi-cultural experiences and friendships.

Anyone interested in hosting one of the exchange participants for four weeks should contact Jean Yeselavage at 348-6211 ext. 6282.
