World Heritage is seeking families, couples or single parents (with or without children at home) who are adventurous, fun-loving, responsible, and, most of all, caring. To begin this exciting cultural experience, you will first meet with a World Heritage Area Representative and complete an application form covering various aspects of your family, your community and your school.
Recruitment for World Heritage host families takes place in the spring and early summer months to ensure enough time for exchanging letters with your student before his or her arrival. Once your student arrives, your World Heritage Area Representative will be available during the entire stay to assist your student in adjusting to your family and his or her new school, community and culture. Of course, in the event of a real emergency, you may contact the World Heritage office 24 hours a day.
