Host Families


Prospective Host Qualifications:

Prospective host families must have the following to qualify for the Rotary youth exchange program:

  1. Empty bed
  2. Loving heart

These are the only requirements that must be met before a family can apply to be a host family.  All of the following types of families are excellent candidates:

  1. Young married couples such as those who work with church youth groups
  2. Families with elementary age children in which the grammar of the exchange student will improve the fastest
  3. Families with teenage children that will assist with the exchange student making social connections
  4. Single parent families that will diversify the family culture
  5. Families without children, which enables those couples to focus their attention on the exchange student.
