Hear it from our students and host families
“Did my English improve? Yes, because I must speak English. My listening improves. I’m lucky to meet this family. They shared their culture with me. If I’m lonely, they call me and pick me up. I have a home here.”
"We enjoy the interaction with students and learning more about their culture and life. It is a great way to exchange ideas and customs. It is a privelege to help someone through the challenges of a new culture and environment. We gain much more than we give."
The Koilpillai Family
"This is one of my best experiences in America. There is a difference between friendships and family, and I needed a family here in America. You gave me a family. I am really grateful for this program.”
