 Welcome an International Student into Your Life!

Invite an International Student into Your Life and Create a Lifelong Friendship!

NWTC’s International Programs is offering an amazing and enriching opportunity for our Greater Green Bay Community Members to experience the world and other cultures from the comfort of your home. We're seeking individuals or families who are willing to provide a welcoming family environment to an international student for one academic year (August 2015 - July 2016). 

Why Consider Hosting?

  • It’s a great way to learn about another culture and language
  • Students selected are exceptional individuals who were carefully screened and have background checks
  • NWTC supports every host throughout the student’s stay
  • Funding is provided monthly to help offset costs (students have their own funds as well)


Host families come in all shapes and sizes:

  • Family of one? Great! Individuals are encouraged to become hosts
  • Empty nest or full house, both homes are welcomed
  • No need to speak a second language


We simply ask that you offer the student to become a part of your family; provide the same guidance and assistance as you would with your family; include them in trips and activities; offer the same care and encouragement and truly become a part of each other’s lives.  

Soon after Hosts are paired with a student they can begin to communicate, to help build the relationship even before they arrive. 

"Hosting an international student in my home has opened my eyes even wider to how small our world is.  Sharing my home has given us the opportunity to have impromptu conversations about the American culture, events, holidays, and world issues as they happen.  I feel that I know my student's family and friends as well.  We will be forever connected."

-Kathy Myrick, International Student Host
