On February 27, 2024 by Los Banos Enterprise

Los Banos, CA – 2/26/2024 – International Cultural Exchange Services (ICES) welcomes Courtney Laricchia as a new Local Coordinator.

“I have lived in Los Banos for almost eight years. I’m a stay-at-home homeschool mom to my two daughters. I love working out, hiking, traveling, reading, and cooking. We have an array of animals at home and love chaos. We are currently hosting our first exchange student and loving the experience! I’m excited to work with exchange students because this experience is amazing for the students and the host families. More people should bring this fantastic opportunity into their homes.”

Courtney is excited for this new opportunity to work with international high school students and the local families that host them and feels that having exchange students in our local schools and communities increase mutual understanding and improves relationships between countries. Courtney will be working with families and schools in Los Banos and in the surrounding area.

Courtney is currently looking for families that would like to host for the school year of 2024. Exchange students live as a member of the host family—not a guest or boarder. They participate in family activities, follow host family rules, and help with chores. Students have their own medical insurance and spending money to cover all personal expenses; Host families provide room & board and loving parental guidance to the student. As the Local Coordinator, Courtney is available to answer questions, give advice, and provide general support to students and host families throughout the experience.

ICES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a peaceful world by increasing international awareness and understanding through cultural sharing experiences.
