Do you long to travel, to experience new cultures? Why not bring the world into your own home by hosting an exchange student? Our Academic Year Program is a cultural exchange between American host families and international students coming to the US to study for a semester or an academic year. We are a US Department of State-designated, CSIET-certified J-1 sponsor program with over 35 years of experience. We believe building these meaningful relationships is the best way to create a more peaceful world. Help us change the world - sign up to be a host family today!
What makes our program special is the emphasis on connection and cultural exchange. CHI strongly believes in the power of the homestay experience to promote trust and understanding among nations and to build a more peaceful world.
We also truly care about your experience. Our national field staff provides a strong network of daily support for families and students. They are knowledgeable and experienced, and they work to supervise your program with efficiency, patience, and enthusiasm.
