FAQs About Hosting

When would I be hosting?

We currently have two programs, a Spring program (around the last of March and first part of April), and a Summer Program (last of July to the first part of August).  You can host for either Spring and/or Summer, depending on your desire and schedule. 

What would be required of us as a host family?

We encourage our host families to treat their delegate as one of their own children for the duration of their home-stay. It’s just like having an additional member of your family. They should help their host sibling with chores and  participate in family activities

Does it cost money to host?

You won’t pay our organization a dime. Your out of pocket cost will be providing food for your delegate during their homestay and whatever entertainment your family chooses to do with your delegate.
