Become a host family!

Change starts with you—open your home and your heart to an international exchange student. As a CIEE host family, you will offer an international high school student the opportunity to discover America through your eyes. You will not only gain a new family member, but also learn about a different culture, its values and traditions, language, food, and more.

As an interested host family, you will participate in the selection of your student with guidance and advice from your CIEE Local Coordinator. Together, you’ll discuss what’s important to your family along with the interests and characteristics of each member of your household.
