Short Term Immersion Hosting
Open your home and share your life
We offer two opportunities for families to welcome and immerse an international student into their homes and families for a short time – during the summer or during the school semester.
No matter which you choose to offer, immersion hosting involves the student living with your family exclusively and offers all the flexibility to your family on how to spend this time – it is all about your family sharing your hobbies, interests and family activities – the student should feel like your new family member!
Involve your family, showcase your community
Welcoming international students into your home gives our international youth a vision of America through your eyes – be an ambassador for your community!
The students we recruit are ready and keen to immerse themselves within an American family to practice their English skills and experience life in the US. During the summer they want to join in with your family activities, day trips out and general family life. If hosting during the school semester, students will be attending school to gain real-life experience of US education and experience life as an American high schooler would – so include them in your weekend activities, evening routine and even household chores!
For students traveling during school semester time, we are looking for families in any state as we work with many schools across the US in which to place them for between 2 to 8 weeks.
During the summer, families specifically in Colorado, North Carolina and Washington are needed to host these students for between 2 to 5 weeks.
Don’t take our word for it!
It was the best summer of my life. I will never forget how much fun I had and how much love and kindness people gave me.
