Join our Host Families

Make a lasting impact on the world from the comfort of home, hosting students from
around the U.S. and the world who are attending one of our rewarding study programs.

Be a Part of Something Special

Start building global friendships with our short-term homestay programs. Plan ahead to host students for one to four weeks with our dedicated homestay team, who are available by phone at every stage of the process.

We Cover Everything

All costs for food and providing for the students is covered with set payments arranged based on the program length and dietary requirements.

24/7 Standby Support

No matter what happens, our team is here to help any time – day or night. We’re always only a phone call away.

Legal Guardianship

While students stay in the U.S. with host families, Experience is legally responsible for their care and security.

What’s Required?

Give students the feeling of home, away from home. Encourage students to share their traditions and learn from them, as they expand their comfort zone and build lasting friendships.

Comforts of Home

As an extended guest, we guarantee students fully-furnished bedrooms, with desks, internet, on-site laundry and functioning windows.

All Meals

Meals are provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner, whether it’s a grab-and-go breakfast, sack lunch or a sit-down meal with the family.

Caring Families

Host families have a whole lot of heart, opening their homes and creating a supportive environment where students can thrive.
