Getting Started


Please complete our online host family or student application by clicking on one of the links below. 


Host Family

As a host family review the student profiles to choose a student that matches your families dynamics.​  Once you've decided, complete the Host Application and submit with your personal letter and photographs for approval.  You will be notified within 24-48 hours.  When you're student leaves, we'd appreciate you taking the time to complete our Host Family Survey.


Student Application

As a student you will need to complete the application and submit with your personal letter and photos for placement with your host family.​  This is an important part of ensuring you are matched with a family that has similar interests to ensure you have a great experience.
