Host Families Needed for International College Students up to $4,000 (Albany and surrounding area)

We are looking for Host Families to host international students coming to UAlbany. We have partnered with UAlbany and many other colleges for 24 years to assist their international students in many ways, but mainly by providing homestay so students can live with American families. We have nation wide operations from New York to California and are partnered with many reputable schools. We welcome international students from all over the world, but mainly from Japan. We place approximately 1,000 students annually nation wide. We consistently recruit host families located in good proximity from the UAlbany campus (80 min by public transportation door to door). Our students are college age and they are full time student of UAlbany. “Hosting” does not mean being a baby sitter at all. They are busy as well as you are. We would like you to interact with them little when you have time. Sharing dinner may be the great opportunity for that. Of course a single person can become our host too. We have many host families switching from just renting out rooms to hosting. You do not have to worry about screening tenants. You will NEVER miss receiving rent as we pay you on behalf of student. Our students are screened, selected and under university programs so they have to behave good to complete the programs.

It will be fun and you will have great joy by hosting ! Benefit of hosting is a great opportunity of global awareness for you. You will learn very much about other culture, language too.
Unlike a high school exchange program, this is a compensated program.
Please see the highlight of our homestay program:
1. Students attend the UAlbany, and they are mainly from Japanese universities.
2. Typical length of stay is one semester, but some stay only four weeks. Students arrive year- round.
3. Minimum length of commitment for hosting is 4 weeks.
4. Compensation is $1,000 every four weeks per student for furnished private bedroom (bathroom may be shared, host family provides dinner and self served breakfast).
5. Host family can host up to 4 students for $4,000. Each student needs a private furnished bedroom. A single person can become our host family too.
6. Students take public transportation going to UAlbany, so host family is not responsible for transportation.
7. Host family need to be located within 80 min. door to door by public transportation.
8. Home visit to answer all questions.
9. Referral fee is available ($200 per referral if your referred family becomes an actual host family, we welcome referral only even you cannot host by yourself).
10. Our students are fully vaccinated by FDA approved vaccines for COVID-19.
Host families enjoy the lasting experience of sharing their home with international students. They also learn another country's culture and share American culture with them.
