Host Family

Interested in Hosting Students?

Welcoming a student from a different country and culture into your home is both an enriching and a challenging experience. By sharing your home and offering guidance, your family becomes an important part of the international student’s life. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to develop friendships that will last a lifetime.

If you and your family are interested in exploring the possibility of welcoming an international student into your home, we invite you to get in touch with the coordinator assigned to one of the host schools in your community. Coordinator names and contact information can be found on the Host Schools page.
