Group Description

Become a CIEE Host Family!
Families with or without children, as well as responsible single adults can become volunteer host families. All that is required of our hosting families is that they can provide a warm and loving environment for our students and are interested in encouraging the student to become an active member of their family.
As a Hosting Family You:
? Welcome a student into your home as a family member
? Provide an individual bed and meals
? Maintain contact with your CIEE Local Coordinator
? Provide your student with necessary transportation or assisting in arranging alternate transportation i.e. a bike, car pool, etc. to and from school
? Attend host family orientations, student welcome meetings and farewell parties
? We offer hosting opportunities for either the semester or academic year program. Additionally, families may choose to welcome a student to the community by hosting for a short-term period (approx. 3 weeks)

What are the benefits of being a host family?
? Unique insight and sharing
? Welcome a foreign student into your home
? Share your daily family experiences with them
? Show your exchange student the American way of life, its sports, hobbies and culture
? Learn a new language
? Gain new insights and a renewed appreciation for different cultures
? Embark on one of the most memorable and rewarding opportunities of a lifetime for you, your family, and your exchange student

What do we provide our Host Families?
? Host family training and orientation sessions
? Ongoing assistance and support from our professional full time staff and Local Coordinators in your community
? Thorough screening and selection of students
? Full insurance coverage for each student
