PAX Academic Exchange Seeks Host Families for Vegetarian Students

Posted on June 30, 2014 by The VRG Blog Editor

We received this note from Kelsey Maloney at PAX. Note: If you live in Baltimore, Maryland and are interested in hosting vegetarian exchange students, you can contact Meredith Safford at 410-382-5359 or email

PAX is a nonprofit Department of State designated international high school exchange program. We have exceptional students that come from over 70 countries around the world. These students have been picked out of thousands of applicants. Students come fully medically insured, and are responsible for all personal expenditures. Host families are asked to provide living arrangements, a suitable study environment, and participation in family meals. During the year, students attend local high schools- the details in which we at PAX arrange. Also, throughout the entire stay students and host families are supported by a local community coordinator.

This year we are searching for host families for some of our exceptional students that are vegetarians. We at PAX feel it would be best to place these students with families that are familiar with a vegetarian diet.

It is our hope that you can share this information about PAX with your members and have anyone interested in hosting or learning more about our program contact me at

More information can also be found on our website at

If interested, I can send over profiles of certain students we have available that will sure to be a match for any family!
