Choose to be a part of something bigger and impact a young person’s life by immersing them in your world.

Here are some testimonials from participants who had their lives changed by living with a host family through the Youth Ambassadors program:



“It was an amazing experience. I will never forget when three host families got together for dinner. That evening we discussed what was similar and what was different from the USA.”



“[Host families], you make dreams come true… When I knew I would go to the United States with this program, I thought… “My favorite thing will be that food. My favorite thing will be that place.” And I can tell you that my favorite thing wasn’t a place or a kind of food. My favorite thing was my host family.”



“They helped me improve my English… We shared a lot of beautiful moments. The exchange was one of the best things in my life.”


Host families are an essential part of the AMIGOS experience. It’s an opportunity for you and your family to open your home and share a part of your lives with a young person from another country.
