FAQS and Qualifications
What is required of an AFS Host Family?
As a host family, you will provide your student with:
The opportunity to participate in your family’s daily lives and events
The same care, support, and comfort you would another member of your family
A bed, not convertible or inflatable in nature; sharing a room with a sibling of the same gender close in age is fine
Three quality meals, including lunches and meals eaten as a family in restaurants
Who'll be your HOST Son/Daughter?
AFS students who come from more than 80 countries, and are seen as role models and leaders in their home communities by demonstrating maturity and motivation to study abroad.
How are students selected?
AFS students are required to meet a high standard of qualifications to be accepted by the AFS office in their home country, as well as by AFS Philippines. They must:
demonstrate a commitment to academic motivation and possess solid grades
be in good general health and meet the medical criteria
Who is eligible to host?
All types of families are encouraged to apply; there is no “typical” AFS Host Family.
How long do AFS participants stay with host families?
YP stay for 11 months and arrive in mid-July
Semester participants stay for 6 months and arrive in either mid-July or mid-January
Intensive Program participants stay for 11 weeks.
What is a host family's financial obligation?
AFS students arrive with their own spending money for social and school activities, clothes, etc. As a host family, you will not need to provide spending money or an allowance.
Will the host family need to cover medical expenses?
No, your student will come with secondary medical insurance so that, in an emergency, the student can be treated as soon as possible.
What if problems arise?
AFS volunteers have a lot of experience in placing participants with families and we provide extensive support throughout the year. However, if the placement does not work out satisfactorily, AFS assumes responsibility to move the participant to another family.
Does AFS have rules for participants?
expected to obey all the AFS rules and policies that are applicable while on their program.
breaking a rule such as driving, hitchhiking, or partaking in illegal drugs, they will have their program terminated.
expected to obey Philippine laws.
limit independent travel by students.
