Why Partner with us?
We recognize that no two students are the same. For this reason, we work with each student to match them to their ideal host family. Having a variety of host families allows us to tailor the needs of the student to their ideal program. Our families love to connect with the students allowing for more one on one time to help increase their language and academic development.
Our work at My International Family is about more than placing students in homestays. We know that in order to build meaningful cross-cultural bridges, a good environment needs to be established. We believe that the homestay setting is the ideal place to influence the future leaders of the world and provide them with positive cross-cultural experiences which will benefit the world for generations to come.
