SHARE! is looking for caring adults or families to host international exchange students. Hosting a SHARE! exchange student fosters lifelong friendships and deeper understanding of other cultures.
Our Host Families
SHARE! families are diverse! Traditional two-parent families (with or without children), single parents or adults, and retired couples all make wonderful host families.
Host families provide a bed, meals, as well as friendship, understanding, and a desire to share their American way of life.
SHARE!'s Amazing Students
All students speak English, are covered by medical insurance and have spending money for their personal expenses. They attend the high school closest to their host family's home and hope to arrive in August. Families are able to choose their own boy or girl from over 25 countries like Sweden, Germany, France, Italy, China, Thailand, South Korea, Ecuador, Argentina and Brazil.
