Host Families

Two Worlds United Host Families.  Host Families are carefully chosen by Two Worlds United based upon their desire to host a visiting student and their ability to provide a safe, comfortable home and a positive cultural experience for their new family member.  Host families decide to host for many reasons: to make friends with a young person from abroad, to encourage the exchange of ideas, to share their culture and to learn about yours.  They will offer guidance, help you adjust throughout your stay and help you understand life in their country.  They will be eager to answer your questions and above all, they will want to welcome you as a member of their family.

What are the Host Families like.  The volunteer host families selected for Two Worlds United exchange students are carefully screened. They agree to take a young person from another country into their home and teach him or her about their own culture and language.  A host family provides warm care and counseling as well as room and board for their exchange student.  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.  

The Families are diverse.  They 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.
