As a homestay host, you have the opportunity to serve as an ambassador to a student that finds himself thrust into a completely foreign environment. You can provide security and a sense of community for this student, which will not only help his/her studies but will give the student a much deeper appreciation of who we are as a people. And foremost in the mind of the student, you provide the opportunity to be immersed into an English-speaking environment.
Additionally, you will have your eyes opened to an entirely new culture. You will get to see the world from a uniquely different perspective.
USA Homestays will provide the training and orientation to prepare you (and the student) for this relationship. We will always be a resource for you and will walk this path together.
If you are ready to open your home to a student, to share your life with him/her, then we would like to talk with you. We have high standards for the families that become part of this program because we want this to be a successful relationship that brings divergent people together and possibly even transform people.
As a host, you would receive a monthly stipend that should more than cover any costs. However, our host families do not do this for financial gain. They do it to touch the lives of people they would otherwise never have the chance to meet.
If this reflects your heart, we would love to talk with you. Please fill out the form below.
USA Homestays is very deliberate in selecting both students and host families. We strive to make the best possible matches. Therefore, USA Homestays does not guarantee placement for every applicant. This online form is simply the beginning of the process of finding a suitable match
