Host An Exchange Student In Houston

Updated on September 16, 2017

Be honored....

To be a host family for a foreign exchange student

Have you ever thought of hosting a student in your family and home and teaching them American culture?

  • The exchange students live as a member of your family, attending the local high school for one academic school year or one semester.
  • An exchange student's needs are simple - a bed of her own (many students share a bedroom), a quiet place to study, and an extra place at the table for meals normally eaten at home.
  • The exchanges students come with their own money. They take care of their own school lunches, phone bills, school expenses, etc.
  • All exchange students are covered by full medical insurance.

Benefits

When you volunteer to host an international exchange student, you will experience a foreign culture without ever leaving home. By opening your home, you open a student’s eyes to America: real people, real experiences, and real life. At the same time, your generosity of spirit creates a positive view of the United States that crosses oceans—and lasts a lifetime. You'll certainly grow to love the boy or girl who enters your home, a stranger in August, and leaves, a family member in December or June... it's your choice.


Standard Guidelines


  • Must have 2 or more family members ( single may host with prior authorization)
  • Have at least one family member over 28
  • Provide breakfast, dinner, and snacks for the student
  • You can have up to two exchange students
  • Financially secure


I am specifically looking for host families in The Woodlands, TX or surrounding areas are considered . If you live in the area and would like to be blessed by the wonderful experience of hosting an exchange student for more information you can call or email me at karli.duran@yahoo.com or call 601-299-0928.

I will serve as the coordinator between you, the student, and the school. I will have contact with you and your student, and I will provide the counseling support should any issues arise.

If you are not from The Woodlands but still interested in an exchange program, I can also refer you to coordinators in your area.

      Hey Figment, pretty cool hub. I've never considered being a place for an exchange student, even though I live close to many colleges and other schools. Your hub should be useful to people who find it. Well done. :) :D
