A Connection That Lasts a Lifetime

We believe that one connection has the power to change the world. When you volunteer to host a foreign exchange student, you’ll gain a new brother or sister for your child, a son or daughter, a grandchild. The new energy and understanding that fills your home will initiate a ripple effect that extends to the local school, community, and ultimately the world.

As an Ayusa host family, you will offer an open-minded and hardworking high school student the opportunity to:

  • Study in an American high school for 5-10 months
  • Experience a new culture
  • Benefit from the generosity and hospitality of your family
  • Build lifelong friendships
  • Develop language and leadership skills that will serve them throughout their lives

Host an exchange student and give an international high school student the opportunity to experience America while gaining a new family member in your home.

The Reed family welcomed several exchange students over the years and formed bonds that lasted a lifetime.  When the Reeds celebrated a landmark anniversary, they knew it was time to bring their family together.  Read more about their heartwarming reunion.
