HOST AN INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE STUDENT

Welcome an international student into your home and be part of an experience of a lifetime. AYA has been placing international high school students with American families since 1981 and is one of the largest and most respected high school homestay programs in the U.S. You can visit the AYA webpage by clicking on the logo below.

AYA is looking for host families for the 2017-18 school year in the Austin/Central Texas area.

  • Students – Students are 15-18 years old and come from over 45 countries, including Germany, China, Thailand, Italy, and Brazil to experience life in the U.S. Once you register, your family can search student profiles.
  • Host Families – Host families provide students with a safe, supportive, and loving home for the academic year or semester or even for a welcome period. AYA provides each student with full medical insurance designed specifically for cultural exchange participants and each student has his or her own spending money.
  • Local Coordinators – As the local coordinator for the Austin area, I provide support to host families and students throughout the year. I can answer any questions you may have about the program and I can walk you through the registration and student selection process.

You can contact me at hello@hostfamiliesaustin.org.

I look forward to hearing from you!
