EF Foundation offers host families the strongest local and national support network in the industry.
- Our host families have the support of their local coordinator, as well as access to our full-time professional staff located at our Cambridge headquarters. Our national staff is available 365 days a year/24 hours a day and has overall responsibility for each exchange student while they are living in the United States.
- Our local coordinators are available to help host families prepare for their student’s arrival and provide ongoing enrichment activities for families and students throughout the exchange year.
EF Foundation’s trained coordinators and placement staff have extensive experience working with thousands of families each year. Matching the right student with the right family is a top priority.
- We have spent more than 30 years matching over 100,000 students with their American host families.
- More than 30 percent of our host families are repeat hosts.
