Central Lakes College is looking for hosts to accommodate two young German students for the 2011-12 academic year. The students: 1. Antonio Brauer, 21, a native of Leipzig who would like to study engineering and enjoys sports (especially rowing and jogging), politics, and aviation. He is eager to share what he knows of German and European culture and to understand American culture. 2. Franziska “Franzi” Losch, 22, of Esslingen, which is a southern city of more than 90,000 near Stuttgart. Since 2008 she has been an apprentice as a Management Assistant in Informatics at Daimler-Chrysler, where her duties involve pricing and product management of Mercedes-Benz truck parts. She enjoys swimming, riding motor bike, reading fiction, botanical work, and gardening. The two are participating in the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange for Young Professionals, a scholarship program that includes studies at a college and a six-month paid internship in their career field. Hosts may be individuals, couples, families with children, and grandparents. Hosts can request a monthly stipend of up to $225, provide two meals a day, a private bedroom, and integration into daily life. Participants help in the household and participate in family activities and celebrations. The CLC contact is Joan Jenkins, 218-855-8263, email@example.com or contact Beth Uding at 212-497-3512, firstname.lastname@example.org
