Please fill out the form below so we can best match a student to your family. The more information you provide the easier it will be to find a match for you. Once matched you will be provided student information including contact info so that you may communicate with them prior to the experience. Please note matches will not be released until all exchange students have been placed with a family.
Please note families are expected to provide a room, meals, laundry, and local transportation to events as indicated on itinerary. The students are all native Spanish speakers, however one of their major goals is to improve their English with their host families.
Exchange dates for 2018-19 school year are January 16th-30th except for Middleton which is hosting Nov. 14th-27th.
The summer exchange is for two weeks and will have the same format as the winter exchange with students experiencing the best Costa Rica has to offer. In addition to cultural activities, students will zipline, travel to a beach island, visit a volcano and hot springs, explore the capital city of San José, and see how coffee is made.
Dates and cost are to be determined, but will be for two weeks during the summer.
Please note you are not required to participate in summer exchange if you host in the winter. Likewise, students may participate in summer exchange without hosting during the winter exchange.
