Host Families are the backbone of a student’s successful experience abroad.

As they provide our students’ home away from home, Amerigo/UTP is dedicated to finding families that can make our students feel safe and supported.

A key quality of a host is flexibility to a student’s unique needs, interests, and understanding of the adjustment to life abroad. Students are looking for a comfortable, welcoming environment for their study abroad experience!  

Hosts are paid between $900 and $1200 per month.
