Build International Friendship Forever

Enjoy an international stay. Have fun and make new friends. Great volunteer experience for the whole family!

ROCKFORD, ILLINOIS, USA, June 2, 2022 / — We are looking for volunteer families to host our students. Compass USA has encouraged volunteer homestays since 2000. When the borders closed in 2020, we were disappointed to see our homestays cancelled. We have run out of accommodation for the past two years. Finally, our students return and they look forward to making friends and exploring our beautiful communities.

After two years of inactivity, it was extremely difficult to restart. We urgently need interested volunteers to welcome our students.

Our students are between 14 and 18 years old. Many have waited nearly three years to come to USAi!

Paula – 17 years old I love being the big sister of my younger twin sisters. I spend a lot of time with my family and friends. Shopping, skiing and the gym are my passions.

Mara – 16 years old I love painting and cooking, especially baking; and also swimming and skiing. I also like to read and I am learning to play the guitar. My favorite dish is the Spanish omelet, and I love dark chocolate and cookies!

Eduardo – 16 years old I live with my mother, my father, my older brother and my dog, Lolo. I love tennis and enjoy hunting, cycling, clay shooting, fishing and soccer.

Ventura – 17 years old I am a happy boy with a generous heart. I love playing football and rugby! Going to Chicago is my dream. I look forward to meeting you !

Martino – 16 years old My main hobby is doing sports, I like going to the gym. I also like to travel and discover new places and cultures. I also like animals. I decided in this case to visit Chicago because my brother has already been there and gave me very good impressions of his own experience.

Oscar – 15 years old I am very close to my parents, we laugh a lot and I like being with them. I like movies, playing basketball, working in dad’s restaurant, jogging (not too far), hiking and scuba diving. I like playstation, music and watching u tube and tiktok.

Rebecca – 15 years old I have an older brother, an older sister and a younger sister. I am a middle child. We like to do things like watching movies, doing sports… I run with my dad and older sister. I cook with my mom and dad. I like reading and also cartoons and anime.

Agathe – 16 years old I live in Paris with my parents, my big brother, my little twin sisters and my cat. I have several passions: I love reading manga, skateboarding (I have a longboard) and swimming (I’ve been in a club for 8 years). I also like watching movies, going out with my friends and drawing.

If you want an international experience without leaving home and promoting the growth of international understanding and global friendships, hosting a French student this summer is the perfect opportunity for you and your family!

Who can be a host family?
• A couple with or without children
• A single parent with at least one child living at home
• English must be the main language spoken at home
• Each student must have their own bed in a private room. A folding sofa, an inflatable bed or a futon that is comfortable and can be used as a bed at any time is OK! Can share a room with a same-sex/similar-age host brother
• A family must agree to share meals.
• A family must be very enthusiastic about hosting.
• A family should be warm and willing to spend time with their student
• All family members should be receptive and open to the host family.
Host families receive a small weekly allowance to help offset the cost of having an extra person in their home.

Compass USA began promoting programs that build cross-cultural understanding in 2000. Our homestay program helps foster strong leadership skills and English language acquisition. Our staff works as a team to deliver quality programs across the country. Compass USA homestays and cultural experiences go beyond a typical vacation or tour. Participants learn to look beyond language, color and customs to discover the true character of others: a process that Compass USA believes will bring people closer to the world, one student at a time.
