Host Family Portfolio

The first step of the USA Program involves the screening and selection of prospective host families by the USA Program Local Representative. USA Program Local Representative will interview, evaluate, and recommend the prospective host families based on the following areas:

  • Togetherness as a unit (strong bond)
  • Willingness to host (family character)
  • Reason for hosting (proper motivation)
  • Willingness to share the American culture and language and customs (generosity)
  • Must pass our reference check (stability)

The "Host Family Portfolio" was structured to indicate where the USA Program intl. students will live and grow while in the United States. The USA Program Host Family Portfolio was designed to give complete information regarding the host family home, community, and private school.

Every Intl. Student will receive a USA Program Host family Portfolio before their arrival into the United States. Once the host family has been approved and secured, USA Program will proudly put together a Host Family Portfolio, which will consist of:

  • Executive Letter
  • Orientation/ Preparation info.
  • Host Family Application Form
  • Local Representative Report Form
  • Host Family Welcome Letters & Pictures
  • Local Representative Welcome Letter
  • Brochures/Magazines about Host Community
