Expand your family's horizons this summer by:
- Opening your heart and your home to a global visitor
- Enabling your teenager to stay with a family abroad
Texas Global Education and Cultural Exchange provides several one-month home-stay opportunities.
Home-stays (instead of staying in a hotel) have many advantages:
- Experience life from the inside - not as a tourist
- Learn, appreciate, understand and evaluate another culture - and your own
- Establish a close relationship with someone - from another culture
- Develop cross-cultural understanding through communication and interaction
The focus of a cultural exchange is friendship, but lasting friendships and warm memories aren't the only results. Young people who have the opportunity to live with a host family in a foreign country or to host an international youth in their home enjoy a priceless educational experience that better prepares them for a life in a global society.
