Become A Host Parent For International Students
Steps to Become a Host Parent
INQUIRY AND PHONE SCREEN
After you complete the inquiry form, a Cambridge Network staff member will follow up with you to schedule a phone screen if we have homestay programs in your area. If we don’t have any programs in your area at this time, we will keep your information on file in case we have students to match you with to help you become a host parent in the future.
After the phone screen, you will be sent a unique link to the host family application. Our staff will be available to answer any questions you may have on completing the application which helps us to make sure we provide safe and comfortable homestays to our students.
BACKGROUND CHECK AND HOME VISIT
Our host application process is completely online now. After your application is reviewed, we will conduct background checks on all members of the home, 18 years of age and older and schedule a virtual visit to your home to meet your family and see where a potential student would be living. At this time, we will take photos and compile a hosting profile to share with potential students and their families to get to know you better.
