Become a Host Family

Interested in hosting a European high school exchange student?

In order to guarantee the most options as possible for our European exchange students, European-Elite is proactive in the search for host families.  

Our approach to the US exchange student program is to put focus on the sport culture in the US.  In the US, sports and academics work hand in hand.  The push to be a good student is rewarded with the ability to play the sports that they love and vice versa.  We understand the link between the discipline used to succeed in sports and the discipline needed to be successful in life. 

European-Elite wants to create the best situation for ever student that we send over, to gain the most from their time in the US.  The hardships and lessons learned from sports are the same hardships we learn in life.  Playing youth sports in the US is an experience a European student will ever forget.

  • Students will live with the host family for 10-11 months depending on the start/end of the school year in their location.
  • City or school size is not important as all families are welcome.  
  • Host families should be financially sound since on the J1 Visa program host families are not paid, certain tax exemptions are however available.
