What are my responsibilities as a host?

The most important thing that host provide is a warm and welcoming stay.  Hosts eat with their students, speak with them and ask about their day.  You will also need to provide:

  • Breakfast, a packed lunch and an evening meal
  • A suitable bedroom and bathroom facilities
  • Transportation to and from a nearby meeting point in the morning (8am) and evening.

I have other commitments, will I have to take them to places during the day?

No.  They are out on trips and activities throughout the day.  You don’t need to take them out.   We understand that many hosts work, have family and other commitments.  The joy of hosting is that you can do this around your other activities.
