Host Family Extras
Following are a few of the extra perks our host families receive when they host a student from any SDCH organized programs.
This year we are introducing a new interactive program in July. This program will include a limited number of responsible, American hosting teens on the LA tour with the Spanish group. Interactive hosting teens will join the group for the tour including three nights in Santa Monica, two days of sightseeing, a full day at Magic Mountain and a full day at Universal Studios before the departure.
Non Interactive families-
Host families will receive a grocery stipend for sharing meals with their student.
Daily transportation to activities will be provided to all families within our boundaries.
Adult drivers who are able to commit to transporting a carpool of students to and from their program activities will be compensated on a per student basis.
This hosting opportunity will open doors for your teen to visit some of their new International friends. After hosting SDCH students for a total of 210 days (30 weeks), you will receive a flight voucher (up to $1000) towards an International flight so you can visit some of your new friends.
*This trip is the goal of many host families. If you plan to take advantage of this opportunity, please keep in contact with your students. Also please be aware of the agreement the students sign in Spain before they join the program. They agree to not return to the host family in July or August, during a LYCI program which they could join. If any host family accepts a former student during a program, the family will loose all travel points accumulated. If you want to invite your student to return, great! Just not in July or August, during our programs.
