Students want to know about our culture, improve their English and are ready to live by the rules of their host families. As hosts, your family will discover a new culture, you will have a life-changing experience and will make friends from around the world!

Students are between 15 and 18 years old and come from more than 30 countries around the world. They attend a local high school and will live with you as a member of your family!

Time frames vary, but most families host for a period of 11 months, from August to July. In certain regions we also run Summer Programs, where it is possible to host for a period of 4 weeks.

AFS families receive no pay; getting a new son or daughter is the reward!
