Open Your Home to an International Student and Receive a Stipend!

Open Your Home to an International Student and Receive a Stipend!

Bishop McNamara in Kankakee has partnered with gphomestay’s residential program! Together, we are offering an incredible opportunity to families in Kankakee and the surrounding areas. If you are interested in making a positive impact on the life of an international student and live within 30 minutes of Bishop McNamara High School, you may want to consider becoming a host family. You may learn more at our website:  www.gphomestay.com

Host families will receive a monthly stipend and have access to ongoing support from local Residential Coordinators who can help with coordinating meeting your student upon arrival, keeping you connected with the school community, and mediating issues if they arise.

Students come with their own insurance and spending money and stay for the academic year. There are also short-term hosting opportunities available.

Do you know someone who might be interested in hosting a student? For every approved host family that lists you as a reference on their application, you will be rewarded a $150 referral bonus!
