Volunteer to Host a Foreign Exchange Student in your town and surrounding areas!!
Benefit from opening your home and heart to an exchange student for a term during the upcoming high school year by:
- Making life-long friendship connections abroad
- Giving a young person an opportunity to immerse themselves in our American culture and your family
- Gaining an international son/daughter
- Gain new perspectives on our American way of life through the eyes of your exchange student
Choose from these ways to host; just a few weeks as a short-term Welcome Family, for a Semester, or school Year. You don't have to have your own child in high school to host. You may be a Couple, with or without children, Single, Empty-nester or Grandparents. Many different family dynamics make for great hosts.
And yes, you get to pick the student(s) you wish to host by reviewing our student profiles. Our exchange students, ages 15-18, have worked hard to be accepted into our program and are waiting now to be selected by their US host family.
This year's NWSE exchange students come from Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, Czech Republic, Kazakhstan and more! They arrive with English fluency, travel medical insurance and their own spending money. We ask our hosts to provide a loving, caring environment, 3 meals per day and a bedroom, which can be shared with a host sibling of the same gender 12 and up. Students attend the high school your home is zoned for.

About NorthWest Student Exchange
3302 Fuhrman Ave E, SEATTLE, WA 98102, US
NWSE believes international exchanges maximize intercultural understanding and motivate participants, including host families, to familiarize themselves with different cultures, thereby broadening their horizons and contributing to increased international respect and cooperation. Furthermore, by developing their intercultural understanding and ability to solve problems in a global context, student participants gain invaluable skills as they enter the world job market.
NWSE places international high school students with host families and high schools in the United States for periods of one semester or one academic year. NWSE offers similar programs to US students who want to student abroad. NWSE works through area representatives (called Academic Coordinators), who recruit hosts and schools and monitor programs throughout the students' exchanges.
