Host a student in your home

Do you have a spare room in your home? Would you like to learn about the culture in other countries and earn some extra cash at the same time? Here’s your chance!

We are seeking host families for young people who are already in employment and are undertaking qualifications. They would be in Scotland for between 4 and 8 weeks and would usually be out during the day either at their English course or on a Work Placement. Leonardo Mobilities Projects provide opportunities for people to experience a different culture as part of their own workplace development programme and these young people are usually aged 20+. Ideally, the host families will be near public transport, unless we have a work placement within easy walking distance.

Here what it can be like, from one of our hosts and one of the students…

What’s in it for me?

  • Some extra cash
  • Learning about  a different culture
  • Meeting new people

What do I have to do?

  • Offer homely accommodation
  • Provide two meals a day – breakfast and dinner
  • Provide bathroom facilities
  • Welcome the young person into your home

What do I need to do now?
