Host a Student from Ghana

PCDS Upper School has an opportunity to host an AFS student from Ghana. She is sixteen years old and enjoys school and loves to write stories. She would be a great fit for PCDS but we need to find her a host family for the 2017-18 school year. Please contact Jenny Treadway or 602-955-8200 ext. 2263 if you are interested in learning more about hosting this amazing young woman.
