Make the world a little friendlier! Spend a weekend with an adult international student, learning about their culture, showing them your local area and inviting them to experience your own home life.
Volunteer hosts invite students to stay so the student can experience 'real' Britain, away from university and heavy tourism, and so the host can meet new people and learn about diverse cultures from around the world.
Choose how often you host, how many people you invite (individuals, pairs or families) and if you would like to meet someone from a specific country. Students and hosts will be matched on interests and availability by a Regional Organiser (RO) who will also help you sign up.
No particular skills required, just an interest in people
