Hosting an exchange student can be incredibly rewarding for your family, bringing an international experience directly into your home. Host families provide room and board and share their lives with our female exchange student, involving her in family, community, and cultural activities.

Do you, or someone you know, have an interest in becoming a host family for the 2017-18 school year? The ideal candidate is someone who lives in Mequon or Thiensville, since the exchange student will be attending Homestead High School. Being on the bus line is convenient! She will need to have a room of her own, and meals need to be provided.

We are looking for 3 host families. The commitment is a period of 3 months per family (flexible).

Please direct all inquiries to our Rotary Youth Exchange Officer, Jennifer Sutherland, at 262-387-8840 or by email at
