Remember When…

Cowboy James with jack-o-lantern

Do you remember your first Halloween? The hours spent cutting, sewing, taping and painting to create your BEST costume ever? The anticipation of trick-or-treating and costume parties? Then of course there’s always the candy set aside (or should we say ‘covert snatching’) for the parental ‘safety check’.

How would you like share this unique tradition with an international teen? No tricks here, there’s still time to welcome an exchange student into your home this fall!

There are currently students on program who have been adjusting to US life with arrival families. These families have been helping to bridge thegap between the student’s home cultures and ours as they prepare for the remainder of their academic stay with a permanent host family.



Prepare to share your family’s version of American holiday traditions from Halloween to Thanksgiving to ringing in the New Year and everything in between. Apply today and get ready for a life-changing opportunity!
