For Host Families

Hosting an international student is a rewarding experience.

Without Host Families, none of the Ivy experience would be possible.  They serve our global community by generously opening their homes to  international students. Our students are bold and courageous in their  decision to leave their home country for the exciting opportunity of  studying abroad. Though they are confident students, they are still  young and in need of a caring family to help them learn English, adjust  to American culture and support them in their studies. 

Explore the world, right at home.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A HOST FAMILY?

An open mind and the willingness to welcome one of our wonderful  students into your home for a 10-month academic year. Additionally we  require that our host families provide a furnished bedroom, 2-3 meals a  day (depending on school lunch programs), and reside within 30 minutes  of the student’s school. 

Our Host Families are married couples, single parents, empty nesters,  and single professionals. They are provided with unparalleled support  from Ivy International Program Managers. Training and a monthly stipend  are provided.
