Host Families for International Youth Exchange


International Focus, Inc.

What You'll Do:

Three student delegations of twelve teenagers (ages 15-18) and adult chaperones from abroad will be in Raleigh for Youth Leadership Programs in July and August 2019. This program is sponsored by the U.S. Dept of State and facilitated by World Learning and International Focus, Inc.


Must be 25 years or older



The objective of the program is to promote mutual understanding between people of the USA and our international guests.
We do this by promoting interaction with peers and families, service-learning activities at universities and other facilities, and the creation of a service project to implement upon returning to their home countries. The students will also participate in cultural outings, social gatherings, and recreational activities. Thus, we hope to inspire and create a new generation of globally-minded leaders.

We need families to host our guests (one or two students per household). Each group is here for 2 weeks.

Host families would be expected to provide breakfast and dinner daily, a place to sleep, and weekday transportation to and from a designated location, probably at Whole Foods on Wade Avenue, Raleigh and Cary Towne Center in Cary. Host families are free to entertain their guests as they please in the evenings and on the weekends during their visit. Host families and host siblings are invited to participate in all the activities.



No location specified.
