Host an International Student


Posted: 3/5/2013

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN HOSTING A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY IN YOUR HOME?

This summer, WorldChicago is receiving three groups of international students who are in Chicago to participate in a youth leadership program, practice their English, and live with an American family to learn more about the culture. They are coming from Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Iraq, on a international exchange sponsored by the U.S. Department of State. We are currently looking for host families to receive these youth for periods of 10 days to 2 weeks. Host families are generous volunteers who welcome our international youth into their family life. WorldChicago provides participants with daily activities on weekdays (approximately 9AM-5PM), lunches, phones, and public transportation passes. On weekends you are encouraged to show your host student around our beautiful city of Chicago! Hosts provide a bed and most breakfasts and dinners for their guest(s).
