If learning is your passion, hosting a high school exchange student in your home is the opportunity of a lifetime. Get unbeatable access to another culture by welcoming an AFS student into your home.
NSHSS members and AFS students are a perfect match. Both are considered leaders and role models in their communities, so hosting is a great way for both parents and children to expand their views of the world, develop language and cultural fluency, and gain an educational advantage in global competency.
Choose to bring the world home this fall by hosting an AFS student for a year, semester, or 6-12 weeks as a welcome family. A trained local volunteer will support you throughout the experience. There is no 'typical' family – the shared trait is simply curiosity and open-mindedness.
