Do you love learning about new cultures and providing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to young people?
If your family enjoys meeting new people, exploring new cultures, and helping young people achieve their dreams, then you would make a great host family. Hosting an international student is an amazing opportunity to share your home with an open-minded exchange student who is eager to learn about American culture and family life.
Your local high school has international students scheduled to arrive this fall and is looking for host families to open their homes to an exchange student. Ayusa international students come from over 60 countries and are eager to contribute to the host families and communities they join.
Not only do local schools benefit from the diversity that international students bring, so will your family! You can:
-Share a new language and culture with your family
-Teach a student about American values and traditions
-Increase cultural awareness in your community
-Change the course of a student’s life
Host families invite students into their family for one academic year, providing them with meals and a shared or private bedroom. Your student pays for all other personal expenses while in the U.S. If your family is interested in volunteering to host a student while having a truly rewarding experience for the whole family, please visit www.ayusa.org
