How to Become an AYA Host Family! How to become an AYA host family

We are excited that you and your family are taking the first step to hosting a foreign exchange student in your home. To start the process, please register with AYA and follow the simple steps below.

My host family has beautiful minds and pretty smiles. One of the things that I've learned from my host family is smiling with my teeth. I hadn't smiled with my teeth since my childhood. They gave me that smile back. I loved being a part of their family and it's really sad to leave. I'm looking forward to inviting them to my fatherland having fun together again.
