Host families come in all shapes and sizes from married couples (with and without children) to single parents to empty nesters.

We are looking for families who:

  • Are accepting of cultural differences and want to learn about another culture
  • Can provide the student with his/her own bedroom (sharing a room is fine for summer programs)
  • Will provide family-style dinners most nights and healthy lunch and breakfast options
  • Agree to a criminal background check for all family members over the age of 18
  • And most importantly, have a sense of humor!
Program Highlights


  • Boys and girls 13-18 years of age

  • From various countries around the world

  • Interested in learning about American culture

  • Anxious to meet their American host family

  • Apply to become a host family
