Once the children are here we work with student-hosting families across the whole of Herts and Essex.

The programme in our student-hosting areas is full-time. The students leave early in the morning to go to lessons and then an arranged sports activity in the afternoon. Some days, they have an organised trip to places of interest in the UK such as The University of Cambridge, the Natural History Museum or Mme. Tussaud’s.

If you want to become a student-hosting family and not just earn additional income, but also enjoy one of the most rewarding experiences in helping a child understand and be introduced to a new culture while you yourself make friends and learn about their way of life, then get in touch with us today.

Simply fill-in our enquiry form and we will contact you to give you full details of this enriching experience.

You will receive a payment for each student that stays with you. More than that, your household will enjoy the heartening experience of having people from another culture and background staying with your family. You will experience the language, the culture and the warmth that these children will bring to you.
