ORGANIZATION: BORDERLESS FRIENDS FOREVER FOUNDATION

Are you seeking a unique opportunity to do something good for the world? Do you want to experience a new culture without leaving your home? Do you want to see your impact on a child's life in real-time? Hosting an exchange student is your chance to improve the world, starting with your own community!

  • Who can host? Host families come in all shapes and sizes-no "typical" family exists. Families with or without children, single parents, LGBTQ families, grandparents, and empty nesters can all be excellent hosts.
  • What are the responsibilities? Host families provide a bed, a place to study, three meals a day, and some transportation. Students have their own money to spend and insurance.
  • How long do we host? BFF offers a variety of program lengths so that there are options to suit every family.
  • Why should I host? Hosting a foreign exchange student enables you to explore a new culture and language without leaving the comfort of your home. You'll also develop a lasting relationship with your new "son" or "daughter"; once your student has returned home, you'll have a friend from another world.

Mission Statement

Borderless Friends Forever promotes world peace through cultivating opportunities for cultural and educational exchanges. These exchanges allow people to learn more about each other’s core values. We bring the international traveler and the host family together to create meaningful relationships through which we celebrate our differences and similarities.

Description

BFF is dedicated to making the world just a little bit smaller by bringing together American families with international high schoolers looking to spend a year living in the real America, not the one they see on TV. We have students from over 30 countries yearly, and we are part of the YES and FLEX scholarship programs, which are managed through the US Department of State. We began bringing students in 2016 and are dedicated to providing support to students, families, and schools so everyone can have the best experience possible!
