Hosting a young international high school student in your home is a remarkable experience. Not only can you expose your family, school and community to another culture, language and tradition, but you’ll be fulfilling a dream for a young student-one who is smart, adventurous and purposeful in their intentions to experience life in America.

As the world leader in international education and exchange, CIEE is looking for a family to host a student in the Fairfield area for a short term (two months) placement, starting immediately. All types of host families are accepted-those with kids or no kids, empty nesters, retirees, single parents and others. You just need to provide:

- An accepting family environment

- A warm bed to sleep in

- Three meals a day

- Help coordinating transportation

A generous $800 monthly stipend is also available to help offset the costs of hosting your student.

For more information on becoming a host family, you can visit http://www.ciee.org/hostor contact Kathy Thomson at Kthomson@ciee.org . We also offer a $100 referral fee if you know any great families that would be interested!

CIEE is a non-profit organization specializing in international work and education for over 65 years. It is the largest and longest running sponsor of exchange programs in the U.S.
