By becoming a host family, you are going to make a young person’s dreams come true and change their lives forever. Your student will always look back fondly on this period of her/his live, and this includes the people who made it possible.
We have numerous students with similar interests and hobbies as your family! ETC strives to place our students with the right family in order to ensure the best experience for everyone.
Please note, not all students that show up in this search are truly available. Some students are currently on hold while a family fills out their application. It is best for you to choose 2-3 students that are compatible with your family.
“I was so lucky to live with a family that fits me so well that by the end of the year they weren’t strangers, they were and they still are my family. I learned to love them that now they are a huge part of my life. I’m so happy they let me into their lifes and be a part of their amazing family…during this quarantine I got even closer to my host family and I’m so grateful to have been with them”.
– Mia (ETC exchange student from Germany)
