Become a host family

Hosting an international student in your home is a great way to learn about a new culture and share your own culture and values. If you have children of the same age, they enjoy being cultural ambassadors, introducing their new brother or sister to local customs, traditions and national holidays. Everything from preparing meals to sightseeing are opportunities to discover and appreciate cultural and other differences.
