Homestay Host Families

Every year, we bring dozens of international participants to Missoula for educational and cultural exchange programs. Host families provide these visitors with a unique Montana experience and engage them in community.

Homestay lengths vary based on program. Local families share what they love about Montana, while also learning about cultures and peoples from around the world.

We encourage a diversity of “families” to host, and share regular day-to-day life and routines.

"I had a wonderful time with my host family because they made me feel like a part of their family. I wished our shared moments never had to end."
