Why Host?

Inviting an international scholar into your home is one of the most powerful choices you can make to build connections with your school and global community. It creates the kind of relationships that changes the world.

As a host, you’ll:

ASSIST scholars attending day schools live with host families full-time, while Scholars in boarding schools spend time with host families during weekends and holiday breaks. Host families help define the ASSIST experience for scholars.

All students are thoroughly vetted and interviewed before they come to the U.S., so you have the confidence in knowing you’re hosting a dedicated, trustworthy student. The relationships you’ll make are lifelong, and the perspective you’ll gain is priceless. Of course, you’re never in this alone. The ASSIST team and your school are available to help with any issues that come up.
