The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We’re recruiting volunteer families to host scholarship winning international high school students. As a host family, you would need to provide room, board, and transportation for these students for a school year. You can learn more with our FAQs about hosting and our hosting brochure by visiting inbound.americancouncils.org.
Why Families Host:
Share a new culture-learn about the cultural traditions and lifestyle of another country, through the eyes of a teenager.
Inspire a young person-through their communities, schools, and volunteer opportunities, host families have been enriching the lives of our exchange students for over 20 years!
Be an Ambassador - Share American culture and values by opening your home to an international exchange student.
