Quest Exchange is a non-profit organization based in San Francisco with more than 17 years of experience in international student exchange programs. We are looking for loving host families for our high school students at Harrisburg Academy for the upcoming 2016-2017 school year. Our students have strong English capabilities and come from all parts of the world.

In particular, we are looking for a loving family to host a 16 year-old male from China who loves basketball and does well academically. He is polite and gets along well with younger siblings. This will be his second year at the school. International students will come with their own laptop, medical insurance and personal spending money.

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 stipend each month to cover some of the costs of hosting.

If you are interested in hosting for Quest Exchange, please contact Program Manager, Annie Liu, at or 415-665-3900 or visit our website ( We have an energetic staff that is happy to tell you more about the hosting experience!
