Description

CIEE is looking for host homes for our exchange students who arrive in January. These students will either stay 5 months or 10 months (going home or to a camp for summer). They are all high school students who attend your zoned high school. Host families provide a bed and food and treat them like family. I, the local coordinator, live in the area and check in often. Students are insured and have monthly spending money. Families and students are fully vetted beforehand.

Each student is unique in hobbies and personalities and come from many different countries. Host families can be empty nesters or have children of their own. They are excited to experience American culture and also share their own. Let me know if you have any questions. It is simple to start your application then we can match you with a student for your family. There are boys and girls with interests from music and sports to arts and politics. Some love pets and others love cooking and traveling.

I have hosted before and would recommend it as we essentially gained a family member.
