The Host Family Program for the Department of Educational Outreach provides a great opportunity for community families to participate in helping the University build bridges with our international friends. Families can benefit from an opportunity to find out more about the world, the enjoyment of sharing new ideas, the chance to understand another person's values, to be exposed to another language, and so much more. By being a Host Family, families can experience the pleasure of offering hospitality and open their family's minds to the wider world.
