How it works

How it works

Share cultural interests

Has your family every thought about other international cultures, how they live and how their customs may be different from your own? If so, then hosting a student from another country may be the best way to learn about another country and their people, while also introducing them to your home and the United States.

Expanding your horizons

One of the major benefits of welcoming an international student into your home is that this experience will expose you and your children to a global perspective all in the comfort of your own home. Additionally, both visiting student and your child will improve their communication skills while also gaining personal development.

Building a relationship

In many instances, our homestay program students and their host families build lasting personal bonds. These new friendships may open other opportunities where host family children may visit the student’s home country.
