Choosing to become a Host Family is choosing to open your heart and your home to a foreign exchange student. Many of our host families rave about how wonderful the experience is for them and their whole family. If you are interested in making a difference in the life of one of our exchange students, please don't hesitate to contact us. For more information, call us today at 1-800-377-2232! Fill out the "Host Family Application" and you are on your way! After we receive your information we will set up an interview with your family and one of our area Representatives near you to give you more information about this wonderful program and also help match you with an exchange student who would best suite your family.
From time to time we also have need of Temporary Host Families for a few days to a week or two. If you might be interested in serving in this capacity, please fill out the Host Family Application above and check the 'Temp' box.
If you are replacing the family that started hosting the student at the beginning of the year, check the 'replacement' box at the top of the application.
In order to view available students profiles, after you have been pre-screened and vetted by our staff, they will give you the password to our Host Toolsto open more detailed available student Mini's and profile documents. Many smiling faces await you!
