Host a Student
Thank you for your interest in becoming a Host Family for ANSA Exchange programs! ANSA is Christian based, nonprofit organization and we are always looking for wonderful Host Families willing to provide an amazing American homestay experience for our international students.
Becoming a Host Family for ANSA means you will:
• Provide a welcoming and comfortable home to an international student.
• Assist your international guest as they navigate American customs and culture
• Embrace the international student as a special member of your family, encouraging them to participate in your family’s daily life
• Speak English with and around them.
Step 1: The first step to become a Host Family is to complete a HOST FAMILY APPLICATION FORM.
The information you provide on your Host Application allows the Homestay Coordinator to match you with in-coming students.
Step 2: Once we receive your Host Family Application, our Homestay Coordinator will contact you within 10 business days to confirm we have received your Host Family Application and continue the on-boarding process with you.
Step 3: Review, sign, and return the Host family agreement. This form contains the roles and responsibilities of the Host Family and some info on the Students role too. If you have any questions relating to this form, the Homestay Coordinator will be happy to discuss these with you. In this step you and every person (18 +) living in the house will go under a background check.
Step 4: If everything goes well so far, your family will be accepted into our database. Now just wait for a booking to come your way! Your Homestay Coordinator will contact you with prospective students bookings for your consideration.
Step 5: Keep in touch! Let ANSA know of any changes that need to be noted on your Host Profile (phone number, email address, pets, family members, people living in the house, etc.)
