2018 International House Host Family Program Application
Dear interested host and/or host family,

Thank you for your interest in the 2018 International House Host Family Program. Our students and visiting scholars come to the University of California Berkeley from all over the world. Many of them will be the leaders of tomorrow. They are smart, curious and look forward to learning more about the local Bay Area culture and social life. Hosting them will not only ease their transition to the U.S., but will broaden your understanding of other cultures, help you make new friends and contacts abroad, and build community between the International House residents and the Berkeley community.

This is a volunteer casual daytime and evening socializing (not a homestay) program. You can invite your guests for a meal, mini trips and even holiday celebrations! For big outings, many have found it fun to host two or more I-House residents at a time. Activities and timing are entirely up to you and your guests.

To best match you and with the residents, please fill out the following to tell us about yourself and your interests. We will do our best to match you according to your interests listed, but please be open to all possibilities. All information will remain confidential and will be used only for matching purposes.

For any questions or concerns, please contact Gemma Givens at ggivens@berkeley.edu or 510-642-9490
