Host Families

Host Families are Needed Now for September

Your hospitality can make all the difference to a student’s experience and it is our hope that by becoming a host family, it will mark the beginning of a relationship that will last a lifetime!

Hosting isn’t just about giving a student food and shelter. It can be a truly rewarding experience that melds cultural sharing with personal development and great memories, as you learn about your student and integrate them into your daily life.

What’s Required of a Host Family?

Families interested in hosting must provide the student with a legal bedroom, three healthy meals per day and treat them like a member of their family. All family members 18 and older need to provide a Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry Checks.

Financial Compensation

Host families volunteer to host International Students, but are compensated for some of the expenses incurred while a student lives with them, such as meals, and gas to pick them up from social activities, etc. This amount is non-taxable.
