Host International Visitors

Host International Visitors

Open your home to the world.

As a home host, you are on the front lines of providing visitors a glimpse of our way of life, sharing our local food, activities and customs. You choose what type of visitor you’d like to host – student, teacher, business person, etc. –  as well as indicate a gender preference. The activities you share with your visitor may include cultural and historical places of interest, sports and recreational venues, or places of worship, along with day trips to Dallas, Austin and San Antonio. Hosts are given the opportunity to participate in as little or as many of these activities as they wish.
