Host Families How to Apply for YFU India
If you’ve decided that hosting is for your family, and you live in North India, then you’ve already taken the first and most important step toward welcoming an international student into your home. As you can imagine, host families are selected very carefully to ensure that each exchange student is welcomed by a safe, caring, and responsible family.
To apply, please complete a Host Family Application (download here) and a Host Family Agreement (download here) and send them to our National Office in New Delhi (click here for contact information). Once we have checked your references, a YFU India volunteer or staff member will contact you to arrange an interview with your family to learn more about your interests and hobbies.
If you are accepted to host a student, your YFU India representative will help you select your new family member and seek approval from your local high school to enroll your student.
Later, you will receive orientation materials and an invitation to an orientation program for host families in your community.
That’s all there is to it! We hope you will want to welcome an exchange student into your family. It’s an educational experience that will benefit your family long after your exchange son or daughter returns home!
