Invest in a Child’s Future

The life experience you child will receive are invaluable.

  • Expanding their world views: including languages, cultures, customs, politics and especially strong relationships.

  • Most students who are planning on going to college are looking for something to set themselves apart from the numerous applicants for few openings at major Universities. This is an excellent way to distiguish yourself from the vast pool of applicants.

Reap The Rewards

The life long relationships you build as foreign students and host families are immeasurable.

  • I met a Doctor who was a foreign exchange student from Israel in Nebraska over forty years ago. He still keeps in contact with the host family and others he met during that year of studying abroad.

  • A young man spent a year in a home in Michigan and the host family sent one of their sons to Israel to visit for two weeks.

How it works?

* Take time to make sure this is the educational direction you want.

* Partake in phone or in person interview.

* We then look at your criteria and host families to find matches that our professional staff evaluates.

* We then contact the host family and see if they are interested.

* Then we have a conference call as an introduction.
