EF Educational Homestay Programs
EF Educational Homestay Programs is a non-profit division of Education First (EF). Founded in 1965, EF's mission is to break down barriers of language, culture and geography. We have been a non-profit since 1979 and have arranged escorted group travel to the United States for thousands of international students. We bring students from other countries that want to improve their English language skills, make lifelong friendships and travel abroad to learn about the culture of their hosting community.
Most programs last 2-4 weeks in the summer and offer daily language and culture lessons that are combined with fun afternoon activities, as well as some optional weekend excursions. During evenings and weekends, the students will spend quality time with their host families. This special time that they spend together will lead to a better understanding and appreciation of each other's culture.
