What is the procedure for becoming a host?

ILI asks prospective hosts to fill out a Host Application and return it to the Housing Coordinator, Amy Ben-Ezra. She will then make an appointment to meet the host, see where the student will stay, and answer questions about the program.

Upon mutual agreement, we include the host’s name on our list of available home-stay accommodations and contact the host as needed. Students are asked to give as much notice as possible to allow for housing arrangements; however from time to time we have a very short notice of a student’s arrival. Please indicate whether you might be available under those special circumstances. ILI also arranges for airport pick-up and drop off.

We sincerely thank you for your interest in hosting an international student. We hope that the experience will be mutually beneficial and create lasting good memories.

For more information, please visit our Home-stay Information page. If you or someone you know may be interested in becoming a host, please fill out our Host Application or contact Amy Ben Ezra at (413) 586-7569 x100, amy@ili.edu
