The Group Homestay Program
Building bridges between cultures, one family and one student at a time.
Daily programs run by our Teacher Coordinators focus on culturally enriching, fun-filled activities and English conversation classes. In the evenings and on weekends, local host families teach their students about their unique American family lives, introducing them to their friends, extended families and communities.
Why Become a Host Family?
You may not think your life could change in just a few weeks, but with Group Homestay it can. The program lets you experience what it is like to open your home, share your culture and create a bond that will last a lifetime. From the moment your participant arrives, you’ll be able to feel the world getting just a little smaller.
You’ll have conversations about how your home works, the types of food you eat and what activities you enjoy. You’ll share your culture, and your student will share theirs. You’ll find more similarities than you think. In a small amount of time, your student will have a large impact on your life and your world view, and your connection can last a lifetime.
