SHARE! your heart & home

with a high school exchange student

Make next school year the most enriching for your family, ever! Volunteers- with or without children at home- are needed to host students, 15 to 18-year-old boys and girls, from Germany, Sweden, China, Brazil, Belgium, Italy, Czech Republic, Japan, Ecuador, South Korea, and several other countries. Volunteers are able to review student applications and choose the boy or girl that best matches their family.

SHARE! students speak English, come medically insured, and with their own spending money on personal expenses. They attend the host family’s local high school for a school year or semester.

SHARE! families are diverse! Traditional two-parent families (with or without children), single parents or adults, and retired couples all make wonderful host families.
