Support & Services For Host Families

Each exchange program experience is as unique as the student you host. There will be fun, discovery, heartwarming talks, achievements to be proud of, and so much to learn from one another.

There are bound to be challenges to go with the good times, and we’ll do all we can to assist. You can find most of the answers here, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions.

Some things about being a host family might seem so obvious you take them for granted. You’ll have a much better time if you don’t! Our online orientation helps you get started by answering many of your questions. Your Local Coordinator, or LC, will give you log-in information when you’re accepted as a host family, and will be there to help if you don’t find the answers you need.

For the latest information, be sure to check out our host family news blog. You’ll find fun things to do, profiles of host families, and useful reminders to keep you on track throughout your student’s stay. Check in often – you’ll always find something new.
