What are a host family’s responsibilities?

As a host family, you need to be able to provide your student with:

  • the opportunity to participate in your family’s daily life and events
  • a safe, nurturing and primarily English‐speaking home environment
  • a bed (not convertible or inflatable, but sharing a room with sibling of same gender is fine)
  • a desk/table where the student can study
  • three meals a day with either provisions for lunch or lunch money for school
  • assistance with arranging transportation to/from school and extra‐curricular events
