Host Families Needed

Host Families Needed for 2014-15 Exchange Students!

Looking for a fun cultural experience for your family? We are in need of host families for high school exchange students. Please help by volunteering or by passing this to someone that may have an interest in this wonderful experience.

We are looking for volunteers who are interested in hosting an exchange student for the 14/15 school year. We have students 15-18 years old from around the world that will be arriving in late August for 5 or 10 months. We need host families for these students. We have students interested in a variety of activities including all kinds of sports, scouts, youth groups, piano, art, dance music, reading, math/science, skiing, baseball, soccer, volleyball, hiking/camping, basketball, choir, band, drawing and painting.

Host families provide a bed, meals at home and an inclusive family atmosphere. Students can share a room with a host sibling of the same sex and over the age of 13. Students take care of their own personal expenses and host families offer an opportunity to get to know the “real” Americans. Students would love to get to  know your community and become a part of your family.

We welcome all kinds of families; single parent, single person, couples with no kids, retirees and empty “nesters”! Exchange students can be a great role model and mentor for young kids. Bring the world into your home and have a memorable experience in the process!

Host Families provide the following to host a student:

  • A bed for the student (students can share a room)
  • Meals at home
  • Loving, caring, environment for the student

Students come with the following:

  • Ability to speak English at a high school level
  • Complete Health Insurance
  • Spending money for their needs (hygiene items, school supplies, clothes, long distance phone calls, etc.)
  • Open mind about their American experience

We have students from all over the world including: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Mongolia, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, Vietnam and many more.

Your interest is greatly appreciated, as we have students to place with good host families! Exchange students can be a positive influence on your family, school, and community! It’s so much fun to be a host family! If you would like more information, please contact your local coordinator as soon as possible so that we can give the exciting news to the student that their American dream is going to come true!
