Every year, more and more families sign up to host a foreign exchange student. These families open up their heart and home to a stranger from across the world. They volunteer to give a young person the experience of a lifetime. In return, the students make us appreciate life's little things and become our life-long friends. There is nothing more rewarding than watching an exchange student experience Times Square for the first time and knowing you helped get them there. Everything is new and exciting. Need a laugh? Bring a student to Costco.. They've never seen anything like it. Learn about their country's holidays. Have them teach you to cook a dish from their culture. Learn some phrases in their language. Families, empty nesters, singles, all make great hosts. Host families are asked to provide a loving home, warm bed, and an extra plate on the table. The students are responsible for all their personal costs. We have 5 and 10 month students waiting to live their dream. Below you will find a few of the brave young men and women we're currently seeking a home for. Is it your turn to make a difference? Call me at 631-790-6907 for more information. Can't host but want to help? Please share or ask about our employment opportunities.
