International Students, Inc. provides opportunities for American families to enjoy connecting with international students from around the world. One such opportunity is during the Thanksgiving holiday. You may host a student for Thanksgiving Day only, or you can invite them to spend the night one night or for the entire weekend. We strive to make this a fun and memorable part of a students' stay in America and a memorable experience for your family. Some relationships that form at Thanksgiving turn into long-term friendships that extend well beyond the students' time 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. You will be allowed to discuss the risk factor with the student(s) before agreeing to invite them for Thanksgiving.
The deadline to sign up is Sunday, November 20.
