About

Are you interested in exploring the world, meeting new people, and experiencing different cultures? CIEE, the nonprofit leader in international exchange, is looking for families in the Las Vegas area to host one of our international high school students who will be attending high school here in the fall!

Host Families:

  • Accept a student into their home as a part of their family for one or two semesters
  • Provide a bed and room (student can share a room with a host sibling of the same gender)
  • Share 3 meals a day (other meals or school lunches are student's responsibility)
  • Receive local and regional support 24/7 from well-trained staff and Local Coordinators

Our Students:

  • Are between the ages of 15 and 18 (Grades 10-12)
  • Speak English
  • Have access to their own spending money
  • Have health insurance coverage through CIEE
  • Well screened and thoroughly tested

Becoming a CIEE host family is an experience of mutual discovery. When you give an international student the opportunity to explore American culture through your eyes, you'll discover a new culture as well, by experiencing new values, traditions, languages and foods.

If you're interested in learning more about hosting, contact Melissa Weiss the CIEE Local Coordinator in the Las Vegas area, to learn more: mweiss@ciee.org or 713-703-4764
