We know that many people may be apprehensive about living in the home of a “complete stranger.”
To put your mind at ease…
Hosts & families are very carefully selected;
all homes are carefully inspected.
All hosts are well educated.
We do not work with people who “rent rooms”
or those who ask to be “put on a list.”
These are not home exchange programs.
In order for these type of programs to work well, a number of people are involved in the planning of the stay. Each region has a Local and/or Regional Organizer who visits potential hosts, evaluates the home and who is the one who matches the participant with the appropriate host.
The Organizer is always available (24/7) to solve problems when the participant is in the program.
If you are not happy with the homestay, it will be changed.
