What are the Host Families
volunteer host families selected for Two Worlds United exchange students are carefully
screened. They agree to take a young

A host family provides warm care and counseling as well as room and board

Each family is interviewed in their home and is chosen for their ability
and desire to welcome a young person.
Because a studentís well being is Two Worlds Unitedís foremost priority, host
families are carefully screened.

may have children of any age, not necessarily teenagers, or they may not have
children at all.
There may be other relatives living in the home.
They may live in urban, suburban, or rural areas, and they may live in an
apartment or on a farm.
They will have one feature in common - a desire to welcome an exchange
student into their home and to treat him/her as a member of the family.
Students are matched with host families based on common
interests and activities.
