Host families needed for Spanish exchange students

16 May

Some welcoming local families are needed to host several Spanish exchange students this summer.

Fifteen students, ages 13 to 18, will be visiting from Spain for four weeks this coming July as part of the Global Friendships academic program. Many host families are still needed.


There’s really not much commitment involved. The students, who all speak fluent English, will be attending classes in the Webster area for 2 hours every week, and will be going on field trips and after-school activities, so families won’t have to entertain their guests 24/7. Most of the family time is typically spent on their long weekends off from school.

If your family has a vacation or camping trip scheduled, your student can tag along, and they’ll have plenty of cash to cover all their expenses.

Host families are asked to provide meals and a bed. The student can even share a room with a child of the same gender.

This is a volunteer program, so no stipend is provided. But it’s a short program and a great opportunity to expose your family to a new language and culture, while helping make the world a more welcoming place. Click on the flyer for more details, and visit for more information about the program.

If you can help out or have any questions, contact Dave Kramer, Exchange Program Coordinator, at
