The Interna- tional Education Forum (IEF) a non- profit high school exchange organi- zation, is now seeking families in the Greenbrier County area to host for- eign high school students for the 1990-91 school year. For more infor- mation call: Nila Hicks, Hinton, 466- 0112; Susan Mann, Summerville, 872-3415; Brenda Hunter, Sinks Grove, 645-3896; Joan Vess, Cov- ington, 962-6841; or 1-800-346- 2826. These students, ages 15-18 from Europe and Asia, will arrive soon for a ten-month school year. We also have a few European students who come on a three-month or five- month high school program. Upon registering, each student completes a detailed application from which a profile is drawn. This is available for perusal to aid in selecting a student whose lifestyle and interests are compatible with the host family. All students have been thoroughly screened and tested during the ap- plication process and all have good academic skills and sufficient Eng- lish to function in an English-speak- ing family, community and high school setting. All students bring ample spend- ing money for personal needs and have full medical coverage. Host families are asked only to provide room, board and the enthusiasm to share their lifestyle here in the United States with a teen-age visitor from abroad. American families with small children, grown children, teen- agers as well as those with no'chil- dren at all, and single parents are welcome to participate in this pro- gram, The IEF coordinator will assist in the matching process of the host family and student. They match the family's and student's interests, hob- bles and activities, and are respon- sible as a local contact during the year for any problems or questions. The organization also has state, re- gional and national coordinators who are available to work with the local coodinator, family and stu- dents. IEF has a one-month summer program to France or Spain, and a six-month or one-year school ex- change to Australia available for 13- 18 year old American high school students. Contact your local co6rdi- nator for information on fees, appli- cation, or other information.

Under a two-year, $49,650 grant by the U.S. Department of Educa- tion, Concord College will develop a program through which its students receive credit while tutoring adult learners and out of school youth. They will also work together to pro- duce books of readings by and for adult learners. Concord student volunteers will receive 18 hours of training by per- sonnel from the Princeton Adult Learning Center before they begin tutoring. They will receive credit through reading courses or special topics studies in Concord's Educa- tion, English and Social Work pro- grams. Students will also take part in a seminar, ;'Language, Li~racy and American Culture," which is hoped will be added to Concord's curriculum as an interdisciplinary course in future years. The grant noted "Concord's his- tory of community service projects and field work programs in both edu- cation and social work, proposing the Student Literacy Corps as a context to integrate those strands of learning. The combination of inde- pendent work within their own disci- :)line and a weekly group discussion will also enable students to reflect on and support each other in their tutoring experience." "Literacy is more than a matter of basic skills -- it has cultural, social and political dimensions," noted Project Development Coordinator Michael Tierney. "We're excited about the possibilities of college stu- dents with a variety of backgrounds and career goals havinq the oppor- tunity to contribute their gifts to oth- ers' education, as well as to com- pare their experiences from those different perspectives. "The Corps will also give them a chance to be co-learners with the people they are helping," Mr Tierney added. "Adult literacy students and out of school youth are the experts on the barriers many people face 1o gaining an education. Their willing- ness to share their experiences with college students will be a tremen- dous asset to our future teachers, social workers and other community workers." Mr Tierney joins the Concord staff with a background of almost 15 years in community education proj- ects. The Harvard and Brandeis- educated scholar is also director of Words Walking, the community edu- cation and publications program of the Big Laurel Learning Center, whose projects include the state- wide youth newsletter Step by Step, and youth leadership development projects such as the jobs program sponsored by Concord this summer. he has developed community publi- cations projects in Mingo County, Boston and Scotland and studied others in Great Britain and Nicara- gua. Faculty Supervisor of the pro- gram is Dr Hanfu Mi, an Assistant Professor of Education with a Ph.D. and a master's in Reading Educa- tion from the University of South Carolina. Social Work Department Chairman Buford Young and Assis- tant Professor of English John Baker will also provide advice to the project.
