Amazing Families Needed


Are you ready to make a difference in this world and bring culture to your community?

I have an amazing Swiss student, named Jiyon, that has requested to come to New England this Fall. She loves dance, playing the piano, listening to music and volunteering in the community. Jiyon is also fluent in 3 languages; French, Italian and English.

Our students come with their own health insurance and spending money. If you are able to open your home and heart to Jiyon, or know a family that can, please let me know.

Have a group looking to raise money? Refer a family and if they host, you could earn $200!

If you feel that Jiyon is not the student for you, I have several other students, both male and female, that are also looking for homes.

Information about the program:

EF High School Exchange Year connects volunteer host families with student from Europe or Asia for a full high school year. Our four basic requirements for the host families are:

to provide a bed that is not convertible in fashion

to provide three meals a day and snacks for the student

to provide or secure transportation to and from the high school

Lastly, to provide a caring home interested in learning more about the student’s culture as well as sharing the culture of your local community with your student.

Below are some webpages so you and your family can take a look! We have some past host families telling us about their experience with their exchange studentsand some frequently asked questions.

Host Family Video

This video we’ve posted on YouTube paints a great picture of the kind of experience you can expect when you welcome a student into your family.
