BECOME A HOST FAMILY!

Hosting an international student with Global Connections is a great experience!

As a Host Family, you’ll welcome a new family member whom you will help to acclimate to a school environment in the United States. In sharing your everyday lives, you’ll get to know each other and learn about yourself, your family and community.

We are always seeking caring host families who want to open their home to an international high school or college student. Host families are paid a daily stipend to help offset the cost of an additional family member.

Have a life-changing experience in your own home!

ABOUT US

Global Connections works with each host family and student on an individual basis. We offer a sophisticated host/student matching process after a student has chosen one of our partner schools. We provide host family orientation, assist with student arrival, and are available for emergency support.

Each host family has a dedicated local coordinator to help with questions, and who checks in with the host family and student formally each month. You’ll get to know your coordinator and also join a network of other host families in the area who are supportive and friendly!
