Please consider hosting one of our remaining students!
Hosting is fun, you learn so much, and it brings a fresh perspective to your life. The kids are great! They are excellent students and are well vetted. You have 24/7 support in the event of an emergency. The students are insured and have their own money for school lunches, educational, sports and entertainment expenses. It is amazing how much of our culture interests and excites them. Imagine introducing your student to baseball or American football? Learning to cook Thai food, or play a Vietnamese game, or learn a German folk dance, Slovakian song, a Venezuelan sport. If you have children, it is a great learning experience for them, and it boosts their self esteem. If you are an empty nester or just never had kids, this is a great way to bring joy into your home. The love, laughter and friendship is invaluable. Lets not forget the opportunity to visit your student's family overseas and have an adventure of your own. Please host, you will never regret it.
