Bring the world to your community - Host families needed
Being a CIEE USA High School host family is about creating a home away from home. We accept all kinds of families – those with kids, no kids, empty nesters, single parents, and so on. The main requirement is kindness and a willingness to learn about a foreign culture. Families who welcome a student will not only gain a new member, but will also learn about the world, its many values, traditions, languages, food, and more. Our students have the appropriate Visa, medical insurance, and pay for all of their own expenses. Students are between the ages of 15-18. Students begin arriving in August and most of our students are on a 10 month program with a few students who will come on 5 month program.
CIEE began in 1947, CIEE is the country’s oldest and largest nonprofit study abroad and intercultural exchange organization, serving 300 U.S. colleges and universities, 1,000 U.S. high schools, and more than 35,000 international exchange students each year.
