CIEE, a non-profit organization, seeks families who would like to share their home and family with one of our international students for the 2017/18 school year in Cambridge, MA.
Our host families come in all shapes and sizes. We have made placements with empty nesters, young professionals and families with children. The most important qualities of a successful host family is a warm welcoming attitude and an open mind that is accepting of cultural differences. Students may share a room with a host sibling of the same gender and similar age. Host families are provided with a generous stipend to offset the cost of hosting. We are seeking families specifically in Cambridge, MA. but we will also have other students in surrounding towns. If you are interested please contact to see if we will have students in your town.
Our students come with their own spending money, health insurance and our agency offers world class support. All students are vetted and speak English.
As a host parent myself, I can tell you we have had a great time with our student and have grown as a family. My children have benefited tremendously from the exposure to our international student and their culture.
Please contact me if you would like to explore this opportunity or apply to be a host parent.
