In the past, and in the case of many study abroad programs, families sending their students abroad have had to rely on a system that places their students with a random host family. AmeriStudent recognized that students are more likely to thrive in their study abroad experiences when they are comfortable with their living situations and with finding the most compatible host family possible. We, therefore, have created a system that allows international families to select from homestay situations a family that they think will best suit their student’s needs. Via today’s technology, clients can tour prospective homes and hold virtual meet-and-greets with the people who will have the great responsibility and privilege of hosting their student.

We thoroughly vet each of our host families to ensure, as best we can, the safest and most compatible home environment. In addition, host families undergo several orientations and trainings. We remain in constant communication with students and host families, and we provide 24/7 support for real-time assistance with emergency situations. In short, we remain closely involved and connected with all parties from beginning to end and do everything in our power to facilitate an ideal learning environment and homestay experience.
