Seeking Host Families

We are always looking for host families for our exchange students! Hosting a student is beneficial for both you and the student. Not only does the student get to experience American culture, you and your family get to learn all about your student’s culture,  values, and traditions. Being a host mother or father is easy – you just treat your student like you would your own child! It’s a unique experience that unites two cultures and forms connections like no other.

Students typically arrive in August and January and you can host for a semester or a full school year. As a host family, you would voluntarily provides your student with food, lodging, an open heart, and the opportunity to learn firsthand about American culture. Students have their own personal spending money, full health benefits, and the continual support of local AFS volunteers in the community.
