As part of providing the best cultural exchange experience, each of the participants is hosted by one of the families from the host school community. The best way to experience a culture is to live like a local. Because of this the students will have the opportunity to live with a host family and experience each day like a Colombian!
The host student will be near the same age and most often the same gender as the visiting student. The family stay is perhaps, the most important aspect of a true cultural exchange and, although challenging, it most often becomes the most cherished experience of the exchange.
