TWO WORLDS UNITED HOST FAMILIES
Two Worlds United 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 the Two Worlds United international exchange
student programs 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 international
exchange student into their home and to treat him/her as a member of the
Students are matched with host families based on
common interests and activities. High School Student Exchange
