Lots of families want to host foreign students. But not all of them want to do it for the right reasons
How do you find excellent home stay families? Here are a few tips.
Offer a Prospective Host Family Information Session about your school.
Host families should know what a typical school day is like, what kinds of things the students will be learning and what type of extra-curricular activities you offer. Having them tour the school and meet a few key staff members will give them a sense of how the school operates. You can make this mandatory for prospective host families.
The way to do that is to schedule Prospective Host Family Information Sessions on a regular basis - say once a semester or even once a month. Hand out the Host Family Application Package at the Information Session. If families want to apply to host a student, an adult member of the family must attend the information session because that's when and where the application packages are handed out. If a family can't be bothered to attend an information session, you probably don't want them hosting a student.
