LITTLE ROCK - The Council for Educational Travel USA (CETUSA) is looking for qualified families in Central Arkansas interested in hosting a student from abroad for the 2013-14 school year.

 

CETUSA, a non-profit organization that has been bringing international students to live and study in the United States since 1995, is expanding into Arkansas in an effort to increase international understanding of the Natural State, according to Scott Zielstra, who is leading CETUSA's efforts here.

 

"We want to build more insight about what Arkansas is really like and what it has to offer," Zielstra says. "Hosting a CETUSA student is also a way for families to become lifelong cultural learners with open minds and hearts."
