American Councils is looking for families who are eager to provide students with a loving and supportive environment, a place to sleep (sharing a room is okay), meals and snacks, and a quiet place to study. All types of families in which English is the primary language used at home are welcomed including those with teenagers or younger children at home, retirees, "empty nesters," and single parent families. Host families are paired with a local coordinator who assists in questions of adjustment, school enrollment, etc.
If you are interested in becoming a host family for American Councils, please email: email@example.com for additional information.
American Councils is seeking individuals who are willing to assist in finding high school and host family placements for scholarship recipients from Eurasia, Afghanistan, Serbia, and Montenegro.

Coordinators can live anywhere in the U.S. Training is provided in a variety of locations in February and June and staff support is ongoing throughout the year.
