Quest Exchange is non-profit organization based in San Francisco with more than 17 years of experience in international student exchange programs. We are looking for host families who are interested in sharing their home and culture with a high school exchange student.

Your role as a host family is to provide a caring and supportive environment for your exchange student. The student’s family life is the foundation of their experience here in the U.S. We hope that you can encourage your student to learn about American culture through experiences with family, friends, school, and the community.

There are many different types of host families, including single parents, families with or without children, empty nesters and retirees. We require that host parents are at least 25 years of age and are able to take on the financial responsibility of hosting. Quest pays a small stipend each month to cover some of the costs of hosting.

If you are interested in hosting for Quest please email Annie at or call our national office (415-665-3900). We have an energetic staff that is happy to tell you more about the hosting experience!
