You provide a loving home, care and guidance, 3 meals a day, a bed, and an experience of a life time for your family as well as the student!
There is no such thing as a typical host family! Whether you're a single parent, retired, have small children, teens, or no children, you can have a great experience hosting an international teen!
Why should your family host an exchange student?
Host families provide a nurturing home-life for a high school-age international teen for 5 to 10 months while the student attends the local high school.
Start the wonderful world of cultural exchange - contact NW Services and have one of our local coordinators answer all your questions and show you some of our available students.
