They will assist in the classrooms and use their experience to enrich their career in education in their home country.

We are in need of 15-18 host families for this upcoming school year. Host families can participate in 3 or 6 or 9 month terms. Families are asked to provide housing and meals.

Are you interested in making friends from another country? Open to sharing and learning about other cultures? Do you want your child(ren) to have more Spanish exposure/learning at home? Consider applying to be a host and join our amazing Amity family!

If you are interested in hosting for the 2024-2025 school year, please fill out our Amity Host Application Form.
