Having a normal day can change the world

Having a normal day can change the world

Have you considered hosting a foreign exchange student?

By providing an authentic family experience to a foreign exchange student participating in US State Department Programs, you are changing the world. 

It's not hard to host -- you provide the student with a loving, primarily English-speaking environment that includes three meals a day (such as you feed yourself or your family), transportation to school (often a school bus), and a place to sleep.

Why Host an Exchange Student?

Why Host an Exchange Student?

For a year, you will share your home, family, and life with someone who, in the beginning, will be a total stranger. It takes a special kind of family to consider themselves as potential hosts, and it’s only natural to ask, “What does my family have to gain from it?”

Inspiration

Kids whose parents host an exchange student are often inspired to study abroad, learn a new language, or travel in the future. In our progressively more globally connected world, an appreciation and respect for cultures beyond one’s own is a valuable, marketable outlook.
