Become a Host Family this August!
We have short and long term programs.
What is a host family at ETC?
Becoming a host family is much more than just a family providing meals and a place to stay for an exchange student. Since 1999, host families have supported ETC students by showing them love, American traditions, and becoming their second family. Opening your heart and your home to a foreign exchange student is a rewarding experience that can never be replaced.

Introduce your family to a new language, new foods, different music, and an entirely new culture
