We believe global can be local™.

New Oasis Homestay 360 is innovating the way people understand the homestay experience. At New Oasis, homestay is not about renting a room in an American house, it’s about joining an American family. By saying “yes” to the experience and being open-minded in understanding that families come in all shapes and sizes and that students come from different countries, we can foster a global understanding through the cross-cultural exchange that takes place between a student and family.

Support

The Homestay 360 Program guides host families throughout their time hosting a student.

While hosting a student, host families can expect:

  • a dedicated New Oasis student coordinator located in the local community to assist host families with issues, check-ins and always be a phone call away if needed.
  • a monthly financial stipend to cover the cost of the international student’s living, food, entertainment, etc.
  • New Oasis to screen local students prior to placement, ensuring a high-quality match.
  • New Oasis to match students and host families based on interests.
  • students to be able to speak and understand English well enough for everyday communication.
  • monthly communication with New Oasis.

The Hosting Experience

The experience of hosting an international student is different for every family. If you are at all interested in hosting a student, we encourage you to speak with one of our current host families in a no-pressure, informative phone call or email. Our current host families play an integral part in the success of our students, and are willing to share their experience and answer any questions you may have.

Our Students

New Oasis students are academically focused students who are heavily involved in extracurricular activities in their school. We have athletes, musicians, artists, volunteers, award-winners, valedictorians, and more. Most of our students attend an American university after graduating from our program.
