ETC host families are volunteers who provide international students with a window in which to view and understand American life and culture. Students are welcomed as a family member and treated with the same anmount of respect and compassion as other family members. Students are expected to follow the family rules and assist with household chores the same way an American son or daughter might.

ETC students are between the ages of 15-18. They are carefully screened and have a strong command of the English language. Students come with a J-1 Visa and attend their local high school.
