Open your heart and home to an international student and reap the reward of knowing you have "paid-it-forward". Geo-Parenting means helping natural families from around the world to foster strong academics, self-discipline and independence in their students studying abroad. Our students look for the typical American experience and to expand their human perspectives and become global citizens that can and will change the world. So, if you live within 30 mins of the area's finest college prep schools in the Coldwell Dr area (or within 25 minutes)....lets see if you qualify! $800 mthly

All Geo-Families (host families) need:

 a desire to share culture and pay it forward
 have a furnished extra bedroom (bed, desk, lamp, dresser, closet, window)
 can provide 2-3 meals a day for student(s)
 can provide transport to/from school (or to/from bus stop*)---this is a MUST
 have reasonable wifi accessibility
 can offer a primarily English speaking home
 understanding of students needing plenty of quiet study time
 provides a safe external and internal environment
 all members of the home over 18 must pass a background check

Our students generally select two parent families, homes without indoor pets (allergies are common), those with like-minded teens at home 😊 that live near to the school, are clean and organized. I am sorry, but mobile homes and trailers will not qualify you for this position. Student rooms cannot be shared.


What we do:

We will support you with on-the-ground staff, provide a stipend to offset the costs of food, transportation and to cover a slight increase in utilities. Stipends are regionally determined and may vary area-to-area. We are a purpose over profit organization. We will provide the student with health insurance, a cell phone, cell phone plan, computer, and academic & emotional support in acclimating to their new culture. We provide both the student and host with training. We also support our partnered schools and hope to help you connect with other host families. We also will mediate, problem-solve and work closely as a team to be success driven.

Reach out to us today and let us start the search & match process. It's life changing!

PLEASE READ: This is usually a 10 month obligation, 1099 applies, must pass background check for all those over 18 that reside at your address. Stipend is not negotiable.
