International Students, Inc. provides opportunities for students to experience American culture and to be introduced to American families. Some of these relationships turn into long-term friendships that extend well beyond the students' time in America. One such opportunity is during the Thanksgiving holiday. We are looking for families that will host students for Thanksgiving Day only, and we are looking for families (especially those that live on a farm) to host students for the entire weekend. We strive to make this a fun and memorable part of their stay in America.
In order to help assure the safety of our students, we need some way to vet our host families. Consequently, we are only accepting requests from families that regularly attend a church that partners with ISI Wichita. This gives us the ability to consult a trusted source (our partner churches) when vetting prospective host families.
Disclaimer: ISI cannot guarantee the health of any student placed in your home. By hosting students at Thanksgiving, you are assuming the risk of inviting a student into your home who may have health challenges, including COVID-19. You will be allowed to discuss the risk factor with the student(s) before agreeing to invite them for Thanksgiving.
