Next Program 2023

This program takes place in the Providence, RI area and its surrounding areas.

Program Overview

  • Your family will be matched with a Spanish student who is the same age, gender and has similar interests as one of your children.
  • Your family has the opportunity to host for 1-4 weeks. Each student that comes can have up to two host families. If you are available for the full 4 weeks we recommend it, but will try our best to accommodate any availability.
  • There will be 2  FREE and fun activities per week. Some are just for the Spanish student and American siblings and others include the whole family.
  • The Spanish student will become another member of your family and live your daily life, accompanying you in everything you do. They can participate in sports, camps and may even travel out of town with your family.

Host Family Requirements

  • Welcome your Spanish student into your home and treat them as a member of your family.
  • Speak English within the home during the Spaniard’s stay. It is OK if English is not your family’s native language, but it must be used between family members and with the Spanish student while they are at your house.
  • Provide your Spanish student 3 meals a day, including family meals eaten outside of the home.
  • Provide your Spanish student their own bed. They may share a room with a host student the same gender and around the same age as them.
  • Attend and provide transportation to activities twice per week.
