Become a Host Family with AFS

There is still time to host an afs student for the 2017-18 school year!

Sharing daily life with a teenager from another country and culture is a rich and rewarding experience, and it's a wonderful way to bring more understanding into the world. If you've ever thought about welcoming an exchange student into your home and family, now's the time to learn more.

AFS, the leading international high school student exchange program, needs families in our community to host high school students. All kinds of families can host: two-parent households with young children or teenagers, single-parent families, families with adopted children, foster parents, as well as couples and single people who do not have children or who have grown children. One of the most important characteristics of a host family is being eager and excited to share your life and activities while providing the same kind of care, support, and comfort as you would to your own child or family members.

To find out more about hosting, submit a Host Family Interest Form

Chequamegon AFS supports families in the Ashland, Washburn Bayfield, Mellen, South Shore, Northwestern and Drummond school districts. Host families are needed for the 2015-16 school year. Please contact Lisa Abeles Allison at or Lynn Adams at to get the process started.
