Five students have traveled to Blackfoot and Idaho Falls from all over the world through the American Intercultural Student Exchange(AISE).
"I've hosted since 1994 and we've had probably around 39 exchange students. To offer another adolescent the opportunity to see the world and to share cultures is priceless,"said one of the host mothers, Traci Leonardson.
Two of the exchange students are young men, who are living in Idaho Falls with their host family. They are juniors at Idaho Falls High School (IFHS).
