Homestay and Friendship Programs
FIUTS offers opportunities for individuals and families to volunteer to host international visitors from all over the world, ranging in age from middle school students to adults. At various times throughout the year, hosts can provide short-term homestays lasting from one weekend to three weeks.
In addition to homestay hosting, we also offer programs that connect Seattle area residents and international visitors for professional mentoring and friendship.
