Host A Student

A BEE host family is an important piece of the education program. The family provides support and the foundation of morals and values that is the essence of Midwestern society and culture. In return families will meet new people, make new friends, and have new horizons brought to their doorstep.

Meet Past Families

Program Overview

BEE students will be between the age of 15 and 18. They speak, write, and understand English well enough to study in an English environment. Students go through a selection process and the ones who pass will travel to the Midwest in mid August. A two-day orientation will be held in Lincoln, Nebraska before going to the host families. Students will return to their home countries in early June.

How BEE Coordinators Can Help

A local BEE Coordinator assists with school arrangements, host family placements, orientations, and planning activities.

BEE support staff also provide health insurance and supervision.

Why the Midwest?

BEE’s first concern is for the well-being and safety of students. The family oriented culture of the Midwest is ideally suited to providing a friendly and safe atmosphere for exchange students. The small town families readily open their hearts and homes to students from from other countries.

Why BEE?

BEE is based in Lincoln, Nebraska. The highly experienced staff has been involved with exchange of students from many cultures.

BEE’s local coordinators are well trained to help host families, students and schools with planning and issues. They are former hosts themselves and can provide support and answers.

BEE’s directors will interview prospective students and their birth families in their home countries and base the selection of students upon their English ability, recommendations of teachers, academic excellence, and character.

BEE’s entire staff is available 24 hours a day.
