Host an International Student

We are looking for good families to volunteer to have an international teen become part of their family and share their culture. 

Greenheart Exchange ( has students from all over the world coming to California for either short term summer stays or for the full high school year and we need loving families to host them.  Families can be made up of all sorts of different people……….people with young children, empty nesters, single parents, large families, even single people.  Students come with their own spending money, health/accident insurance, good grades and English skills and the willingness to share about their country and culture with Americans while learning about our culture.  Host families offer a warm and loving environment and the willingness to share their lives with their student.
