Partner with Ayusa to make a difference in your school and community!


What it means to partner with Ayusa

Year after year, our schools and families share their America with Ayusa students from all over the world whose dream has been to spend a year as an exchange student in the United States. In so doing, we are having a positive impact on our world today.  We would love to partner with you to find volunteer host families within your community.   This can be done by tapping into your networks within your school and community by sharing about our program and identifying quality families to work with our program.  We can provide resources for you to share as well.  We are grateful for your willingness to partner together and make our communities and world a better place.  As a thank you for your support, we are offering you $500 for each host family with which you connect us.

"My family is from South America and I spent a couple of months in Peru when I was 16. It was life-changing for me. I want to be able to be a part of that journey with an international student. I also want my own children to be exposed and have an appreciation of other cultures."

"This is our first time hosting, and we thought it would be a great experience for us and our very American children to broaden our horizons. We are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity for a young person to dive into our culture as well, and we also love having more kids around!"

"Our favorite part of hosting is learning about the children and their families. To see each child's personality and get to know them. Hosting opens up something in myself and our family members that puts others before ourselves. It is a blessing to share our world with new kids who then become family."

"Our family has always enjoyed learning about new cultures. It is been fun watching our exchange students make new friends and get involved in American high school activities."
