Host A Student

Hosting a YFU international exchange student is an enriching experience for you and the entire family. By opening your home and heart to a student from overseas, you and your family will gain a new global perspective, many memories, and - quite possibly - a new family member for life!

Host families have many different faces, and are all part of the Canadian experience. Whether or not you have children, you can be a host family. If you and your family is willing to open yourselves to new experiences, share your lives with a fascinating teenager from a foreign land, and provide guidance, love and support to a young person who is beginning their journey into adulthood, then you too will be a great host family.

By becoming a YFU host family, you will:
Gain a global perspective
Learn about other cultures because it's fun for all ages
Expand your family and it expands the fun
Create memories that last a lifetime
Enrich your school and community by adding an exchange student to your family
