What's it Like to Host?

Hosting an international high school student is a transformative experience that brings joy, cultural enrichment, and lifelong connections. Families who open their homes to exchange students often find themselves immersed in a new culture while sharing the American way of life. This cultural exchange is mutually rewarding, creating lasting bonds between host families and their students. Imagine celebrating milestones together, both in your home and halfway around the globe in the years to come.

Who Can Host?

Anyone with a welcoming spirit and a desire to learn can host! Whether you're interested in a full school year or a shorter stay, there's an opportunity for you. Here are some ways you can tailor your hosting experience:

  • Explore a New Culture : Host a student from a country you're curious about.
  • Language Practice : Choose a student who speaks a language you want to learn or practice.
  • Family Fit : Whether you're an empty nester, have young children, or have a teenager at home, you can find a student with similar interests to your family.
