ICES Texas: Host An Exchange Student

by Jemma Fletcher (follow)
Help students around the world achieve their dream of studying abroad in the U.S!

ICES is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting a peaceful world by increasing international awareness and understanding through cultural sharing experiences.

As the global community we live in becomes increasingly interdependent and subject to change, today's young people will face numerous challenges on the journey to becoming tomorrow's leaders.


ICES believe the foreign student exchange experience helps young people of all nationalities embrace those challenges and discover new opportunities that will help them dream and achieve more than they ever thought possible.

It's life-changing to have a second family in another part of the world!

How Hosting Works:

Students are ages 15-18 from Europe, Asia & Latin America and attend your local high school.

Students come with their own spending money and full health insurance.

Students live as a member of the host family (not a guest) and participate in family activities, chores and respect host family rules.

Host Families provide a room (can be shared), meals when not in school, some transportation to school events and a loving family atmosphere!

Welcome Host Families are for up to 8-weeks. Longer-term hosts are for 1 semester (5-months) or a full school year (10-months), starting in August.

Families are eligible for a tax deduction for hosting.

For more information, visit the ICES Facebook page or contact Sarah Bloch at sbloch@icesusa.org or 713-835-2580.
