Contact Monica at 386-316-6017

Want a fun and enriching experience for your family? Consider hosting a foreign exchange student for one month this summer!

The Step in Florida program is looking for 25 families in Volusia County to host a student from Spain for the month of July. The program is free, fun, and enriching for your whole family. The students in the program are are teens and are coming to the area to hone their English skills and learn about American culture. You will just need to provide them with a bed, meals, and treat them like one of the family.

You will be able to see a list of the students who are in need of a host home, so you can learn about their age, interests, and why they want to come to America. After you are paired up with your student, you will be able to contact them before they ever arrive, so you can start getting to know one another. Once they arrive, you will pick them up, take them home, and help them blend in with your family, so they can see what it's like to be a teen in America. 

Students arrive on June 28, 2020 and leave on July  25, 2020.
Host families provide a bed, meals and a warm supportive environment.  All students speak English and come with their own spending money and medical insurance. We have 2 activities a week which families are welcome to come along. This year we are visiting Busch Gardens, Tampa,  Top Golf Tampa, Okefenokee Swamp Park, Georgia. Your student will leave on those days to go take field trips to these places. Your family will be able to join in if you would like to.
