Global Pathways is looking for exceptional host families to house its international students. Approximately 300 new students are expected this fall, so Global Pathways will need to expand its host network. Pathways students are freshmen at the U taking English as a second language (ESL) classes along with regular academic courses. Students are given the opportunity to live with an American family to better experience American culture and improve their English skills.
New students will arrive in August. The typical length of stay is eight weeks with the opportunity to extend upon approval by the host. Host families provide two meals a day to undergraduate students or one meal a day to graduate students, along with a room furnished with a bed and a desk. As a host you must live within a 30-60-minute commute by public transportation to the U. In return, Global Pathways will provide training, support, and compensation.
If you, your family, and/or your friends would like more information about the host family program, or would like to apply, contact Mara Behles or call 801-587-9985.
