From newly-weds to empty nesters, first-time parents to foster parents, our expereinced host families all have one thing in common: a passion for opening up their homes, educating future leaders and making the world a better and safer place. Oh ya, and they love to host. Hear about why below!
Host families enjoy bringing exchange students into their homes because they:
- Interact more as a family (sitting around the dinner table longer swapping stories)
- Expose their own communities to the world (bringing new people, languages and traditions to places that otherwise wouldn't have been exposed to them)
- Build connections that last a lifetime (visiting prior exchange students in their home countries is a top favorite)
- Influence the life of a child during a formative time (is there anything better than getting a new older sibling that speaks a different language?)
