Ready for an adventure for the whole family?

Hosting an exchange student is a wonderful way for your family to give back together, while experiencing a new culture.

Exchange students are between the age of 15 and 18 and come from more than 60 countries around the world. They come with their own spending money and health insurance, and have studied English for at least 3 years.

Most of all, they are eager to learn about your American family!

Is this the opportunity your family has been waiting for?

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
