A World Experience exchange student wants to be a part of your family!
Through the years World Experience has exchanged over 4,000 high school students from around the globe. Every year loving host families volunteer to change the lives of deserving World Experience exchange students. Opportunities are now available for families to serve as volunteer hosts for high school exchange students, ages 15-18, from Asia/ Pacific, Europe, and the Americas.
Could You Influence a Life This Year?
World Experience invites you and your family to join our family by becoming a host family!
There are numerous benefits for all participants in being a host family. Your student has been carefully chosen and screened in the home country. Your exchange student will become like an adopted son or daughter. He or she will be active in family and school activities and take on their share of household chores. Your "kid" will share their culture with you every day, as you share yours with them.
Host families are asked to provide a bed (students can share a room with a sibling), meals, love and guidance. Host families are unpaid volunteers, they are not compensated for hosting. To assure the best possible experience for all participants, families applying to host a World Experience student must be screened by a World Experience coordinator and will participate in selecting the student that best fits their family.
World Experience exchange students have their own spending money and medical insurance. They have all studied English, but have varying levels of mastery when they arrive. Your student wants to improve their English, make new friends, gain a second family, learn about US culture, and live like an American teenager.
World Experience host families come in many different shapes and sizes - young couples with small children, single persons, one parent families, empty nesters, etc. They live in very rural areas, small towns, suburbs, and cities. The one characteristic all host families share is a big heart with a lot of love for a new family member!
