Homestay hosts play a critical role in the overall experience of international guests. Through their time with their American families, exchange visitors best understand U.S. cultural values and way of life. More than 300 southern Virginia families, companies, and organizations have participated in home hosting and program activities for Legacy’s international visitors since 1994.
Families with children, couples, and single adults can become volunteer hosts. Typical hosting periods are 2-4 weeks in length; sometimes just a weekend. Legacy organizes the daytime program activities for your guest(s) on weekdays.
