All types of families are encouraged to apply to host and there is no “typical” American Councils host family. Families come in all shapes and sizes, including those with and without children at home, young couples, “empty nesters,” single adults, and single parents.
To apply, start the application process here. As a host parent or family, you agree to provide meals and snacks, a bed for the student to sleep in, and a supportive environment. If you have any questions or concerns during the application process, do not hesitate to email us or call!
