There is no typical Host Family. The students enjoy staying on farms, in small towns, suburbs, and big cities. To host a student for the summer program, you must have a child in your home who is the same gender as the exchange student and within two years of the same age. The student must also have their own bed.
Hosting a Chaperone doesn’t have the same requirements as the student list above, except for the bed. Chaperones are older and here to have a host family experience too. They will contact their students about twice during their homestay to check in with them and report back to their home country.
