Become a Host Family
Have you ever considered the possibilities of opening up your home and welcoming an international student to live with your family for a short time?
We offer hosting opportunities to fit your schedule: 2-5 weeks during the summer, 4-8 weeks during the school year, or up to a full school year.
Types of Hosting
|Asheville Summer Camp||Student Immersion Hosting||Academic Year/Semester Hosting|
|During the summer months of July and August, international students visit beautiful Asheville for 3 to 4 weeks to attend Xplore’s popular day camp and stay with a local family. Volunteer to host a student this summer 2019 and your family will qualify for free space at camp for your own child! Your children will be talking about their experience long after the summer ends.||Students from all around the world come to the US every year to immerse themselves in an English speaking environment. Host a student for 3-5 weeks this summer in your hometown (placements available anywhere in the country), or for 4-8 weeks during the school year, while your student observes the American classroom.||Invite an international student, aged between 14 and 17 to join your family home while they attend a local high school on an academic placement. Placements can last from 1 semester up to a full year, with some students choosing to stay in the US to continue their education.|
Hear what one of our host families has to say about working with Xplore…
We loved sharing our home with all the special kids and families! I can’t believe it’s over already! We aren’t wanting to let Valeria go yet! We love her! We are so lucky!
