Host a Student
Would you like to impact the life of an international student or scholar?
Host someone for Thanksgiving!
In Thanksgiving 2017, consider offering a student the experience of an authentic American holiday in your home. This is not intended to be an overnight stay, but just having students over for a meal, fun, traditions, and providing transportation if they need it.

Commitment Level: Hosting a student can range from a very minimal level of commitment all the way up to having them live with you. Here are some hosting options:
- Meals once or twice a month
- Celebrate a holiday or weekend trip together
- Take students grocery shopping
- Host a student in your home for a week over the holidays or summer break
- Open your home to a student for a semester or year
Your Impact: As a host (singles can host too!), you have the opportunity to:
- Help internationals adjust to life in the US
- Go deeper in friendship
- Exchange cultural experiences
- Have meaningful conversations that leave a life-long impact
My host mom had me over for dinner every week. Because of her love and care for me and others around us, I started to truly understand for the first time the love of Jesus. I am so grateful for this experience! - Ping, China
