Who Can Host a Student?
There is no such thing as a "typical" Ayusa host family. Whether you live in a rural or urban community, and regardless of the size of your family, you can volunteer to host an Ayusa international student.
As an Ayusa Host Family, we ask that you provide:
- A safe and nurturing environment for your international student for either a full academic year or fall semester
- A private or shared bedroom (with a host sibling of the same gender)
- Three meals a day
- Necessary transportation
Your international student’s natural parents will pay for all travel costs, program fees and health insurance. They will also provide your student with a monthly spending allowance used for school expenses, social activities, clothing and other essentials.
