Exchange City

Unique opportunity available! Many of you have heard of the Exchange City program. It is being conducted in our area again December 11 and 12. This is a great opportunity for your student to be part of a larger group of homeschoolers to actually see what it takes to run a city. For more information, follow the links below, or start at www.frc.info to get more information. The deadline is fast approaching, and 80 students ages 9 and up are needed, ESPECIALLY HIGH SCHOOLERS! These older students get to run for office, own businesses, be the bank president, and other jobs within Exchange City especially formatted for an older student. Check out the info, and have your student jump in for a hands on experience!
