Volunteer Host Families for International Students
1 person is interested
We are looking for loving families who are willing to share their home with our International students for the 2019-2020 academic year. As a host family, you welcome this new son or daughter into your home, provide them with a bed, a place to study, and a seat at the dining table. Above all, you encourage the student to engage in American life-while you learn about your new family member’s country and culture. Through the exchange program, PAX students gain a well-rounded understanding of the U.S. while learning to be more reflective about their own country. Meanwhile, without the need for a passport or plane ticket, your family gains an appreciation of another country and culture!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
