Student Ambassador Exchange


Are you interested in hosting a High School Exchange Student through our nonprofit organization, Student Ambassador Exchange? This is a great volunteer opportunity for all types of families! Host families get to experience new cultures and languages! Currently we have students from Spain that need a host family for the 2020-2021 full school year. As a host family you provide the student with:

  • A home to stay for:
    • A Welcome Period (1-2 months at the beginning of the school year).
    • A Semester (around 5 months; September - December).
    • Or the Full School Year (around 10 months; September - June).
  • A bed, a quiet place to study and meals when not at school.
  • A supportive and welcoming environment.
To become a host family all you need to do is fill out a free application here: family-application/Are you able to be a host family for an exchange student this year? Let me know if you have any questions about the students or the exchange program!
