  • Volunteer as a host family to an international student

    Looking for an intercultural experience for the whole family? Join IPERC in hosting an international student for Pioneer Academy!

    Hosting an international student is one of the most rewarding experiences that you and your family can have! Learning about the language and customs of another culture is a priceless gift that you receive as a host family while at the same time giving back to your exchange student. Both your family and your student will gain a deeper understanding of how culture varies across the world. However, it is the lifelong friendship between your family and your student that makes the cultural exchange program valuable!

    To qualify as a host family, IPERC requires:

    • Have a safe, stable environment
    • Have their own bedroom but may share a bathroom with another family member.
    • Are provided with 3 daily meals (excluding school lunches)
    • Have transportation to and from school, as well as any extracurricular activities. (The school bus is okay)

    To help offset these costs, host families are provided with a monthly stipend as well as round the clock local support. If you and your family are interested in exploring this exciting opportunity, please contact Rachel Fullin, at either (614) 499-3958 or – or go to to learn more about our hosting program.
