Thank you for your interest in being a host family for a Rotary Youth Exchange Student. We know you will find this experience rewarding, possibly challenging, but definately memorable.
Any caring and responsible family with an interest in hosting a young person from another land can be a tremendous host family! The best host families are really just normal families and they don’t fall into any one, easy-to-define category.
Rotary differs from many international exchange programs in that our students generally live with two or more families during their exchange year. This gives the student a more well-rounded experience in a culture, having experienced family life from mutiple perspectives. It is also less of a commitment for host families; the typical length of stay is about three to four months instead of a full year.
Rotary's Host families run the full spectrum of possibilities.
As a host family, you will be responsible for room and board for the student, supporting and guiding the child through the cultural adjustment and overseeing schoolwork. Generally, you'll treat this child just as you would your own.
Host families are not reimbursed or paid for their efforts. Nor is there any charge to become a host family.
The parents of an outbound student are encouraged, but not required, to accept an incoming exchange student in their family.
