ORGANIZATION: EF High School Exchange Year


We are looking for some great volunteer hosts for our international exchange students!

EF is a non profit organization with more than 40 years experience in student exchange. With EF High School Exchange Year you and your student will be supported during the entire exchange experience. Exchange students cover their own travel costs, health insurance, school expenses, cell phone, and spending money. Host families provide the exchange student with room and board, and are expected to treat their student as a member of a family, not as a guest!
