Host a Student

Hosting opportunities are available for US families throughout the year on an ungoing basis. Hosts may share their home for lengths of time usually from 2-3 weeks, or up to three months.  Our Host Families are VOLUNTEERS who wish to engage and share in a cross cultural adventure with students usually available from France, Spain, Germany, Ecuador, China, or other foreign nations.

Host Families need only provide room, board, and a loving family environment. Many of our Host Families have developed a life enriching friendship with the student they have hosted, which continue well after the student's return to his or her home country. Often a US Host Family or host sibling will make a visit to the home of the student hosted. If you are interesting in hosting, and believe you are able to provide an enriching home experience but require financial assistance for student boarding, please let us know your expectations/financial needs.

If you are interested in experiencing a unique and enriching cultural experience by serving as a Host Family, please download our Host Family Application found by clicking on Applications. Have the following information ready:
