Host an Italian Exchange Student

The Italian Cultural Center of Minneapolis / St. Paul has been invited to help spread the word about the wonderful opportunity to help host an Italian exchange student!

Host an Italian exchange student this year with United Studies and experience all the excitement that comes from world travel right from your living room!  Learn firsthand about the Italian culture, language, customs, holiday, food, and more!

Since 1985 United Studies has promoted educational and cultural growth between the United States and other countries. Students attend the local high school their host family is zoned for and bring their own spending money, health insurance and cell phone.

Host families must be over the age of 25 and be able to pass a background check. Families of all sizes are welcome to apply from single adults to couples with or without children! 

Can you host one of these students? 

Daniele, Male, Age 16: Daniele is from a small town in central Italy and is excited to come to America to get out of his comfort zone and experience new things. In his free time, he enjoys playing sports with his friends and learning how to cook from his mother.

Matilde, Female, Age 17: Matilde is from a small town in Italy, and it is her dream to come to America. She is particularly excited to get a chance to see what American Christmas traditions are like especially Christmas lights! In her free time, she enjoys playing volleyball and watching movies with her family. 

Alisya, Female, Age 17: It is Alisya's dream to come to the United States. She is especially excited to see if she can learn how to cheerlead while here. Alisya is very close to her family in Italy and hope to be close to her "family" here as a well. In her free time, she enjoys swimming and spending time with her sister.
