Host an Exchange Student
'You mentor them and guide them just like you would your own children. The beautiful part about the whole thing is, it’s not a job. . . it’s an experience. Getting to learn each other’s cultures and continually growing together. It must be a really good experience or we wouldn’t continue to host year after year!' - Cavanaugh Family

At International Experience-USA (iE-USA) we believe that learning about other cultures, languages, and customs is the best way to dispel prejudices and embrace global citizenship, but we need your help! YOU can be an advocate for diplomacy and provide cultural enrichment opportunities in your life and community.

Host A Student

Hosting an iE exchange student is a life-changing experience for the entire family that lasts well after the time of the exchange. Open your heart and home to a student that wants to share in your life, community and culture.

Host Family Provides-a private or a shared bedroom, three meals a day, local transportation and a quiet place to study.

Student Provides- money for all personal and school expenses and insurance.

iE Provides- a local coordinator to help select a student that is right for your family and provide one on one support throughout the entire experience. Host families do not receive any form of payment.

To find out more information about hosting, please submit our contact form and a member of our team will get back to you shortly with additional information.
