Thank you for being a host family to a World Link foreign exchange student(s). By inviting a foreign exchange student(s) to live in your home and become a member of your family, you have become an integral part of the student’s life journey as a global citizen that begins here in the United States. Since World Link students are solely sponsored through public funding, this can add different rules and regulations that other privately funded exchange programs may not have in situations regarding financial, medical, travel, and academic matters. We have created this webpage to help you understand how to solve these situations that may arise as well as a location to get the forms you may need for these occurrences throughout your new family member’s exchange year. If you have further questions or concerns, please contact your local coordinator.
