Apply to be a Homestay Family

Criteria for selecting a family:

  • A “family” can consist of a single host mother or father, older retired couple, couples without children, family with both parents working outside the home or a traditional nuclear family with children and a stay-at-home parent
  • English must be the language spoken in the home when students are present
  • Our families host international students for many reasons.  Primarily, they seek a cultural experience for themselves or their own children. Strictly for financial reasons is not sufficient as there is no guarantee that a student will be placed in the home
  • Our families must have the time to be involved with the student as they would be with their own child – provide a home-away-from-home.  Our students are teenagers and as such will need the support of a caring homestay
