Take the leap, create a bond, make special memories, create friendships and become part of a global family by choosing to become a host family today.
Greenheart Exchange students come from around the world to practice their English, and experience daily life with an American host family. Our families volunteer to host and have the opportunity to share American culture, our communities unique traditions and making wonderful memories with your exchange student.
Exchange students are ages 15-18, and come from over 60 countries. Students are in the USA for one semester or a school year. We also have short term 2 to 8 week program hosting options. Our students speak English, bring their own spending money and have illness and accident insurance.
Host families are supported by Greenheart’s local coordinator:
We ask families to provide:
* Three daily meals
* A place to study ( can be the dining room table)
* Local transportation
* Their own separate bed
* Open communication, flexibility and encouragement
* A welcoming home by including the student as a valued member of your family
We also offer outbound programs for teens and adults. Visit our website at http://greenhearttravel.org.
