If we attend church regularly, can we expect our student to attend with us?

American Councils prepares and encourages all students to view religious institutions in the U.S. as an opportunity for cultural exchange, better understanding their host family, socializing, and as a source for volunteer opportunities. Many students do attend religious services and/or youth groups with their host families; however, it is against program policy for students to be proselytized to, convert, or be “forced” to attend religious services while they are on program.
