International student management organization is looking for host families in the Chestnut Hill/ Brookline area interested in hosting an international high school student for the 2018-19 academic year. The organization provides carefully selected international students the opportunity to study at US private schools and to experience American culture through living with individuals and families.

Students come mainly from China, are 13 to 19 years old, have at least an intermediate level of English (many are fluent) and are expected to share all aspects of their cultural background with their host families. They are highly motivated and eager to learn. They bring their own pocket money and they carry illness and injury insurance.

Host families can be single parents, empty-nesters, couples with no children, and families with small children or teenagers. Families are asked to treat students like members of their own families and involve them in the daily routine of the home. Hosts provide a room, meals, and school transportation. Most importantly, they are expected to provide a stable, caring environment.

We provide orientation and training as well as local support to assist the host families as they integrate the students into their families' daily lives. We also provide a competitive stipend to cover the cost for food, transportation, and additional expenses associated with caring for our student(s). We work closely with the students and their families, host families and the school to ensure a rewarding experience for all involved.

There are many advantages to hosting:
* It's a great cross-cultural experience to help your family gain a deeper understanding of other cultures.
* Hosting international students can be mentioned in resumes and college applications to demonstrate intercultural experience.
* It's a rewarding experience to share your culture and values with an international student who is eager to learn!

If you think you may be interested in hosting an international student this upcoming school year, please respond to this post with your location and some information about yourself/your family. Please include your email and/or phone number. Thank you.
