Become A Host
Hosting a French student is an exciting and enriching experience for the entire family! By welcoming a young person as a member of your family and not just as a guest, he or she will take part in all aspects of your family’s daily life and activities. Opening your home to a young French person will allow your family to learn about a new culture, as well as make a new friendship that can last a lifetime.
From our office in Minneapolis, VIE staff coordinate the largest U.S. host program which brings approximately 100 French students to Minnesota each summer.
Other program locations throughout the U.S. vary by year and are run by local VIE coordinators. If you are a French teacher interested in coordinating a host program in your area, please contact VIE for more information.
