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.
