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 families in Volusia County to host a student from Spain for one month during summer 2022. 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.
See the list of available teens below to see which one would work well with your family. 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.
