Would you like to host a French exchange student this summer? The program is just three weeks long. ACE International gives each family a host family Hospitality allowance to help with the extra cost for food and gas. You will receive $400 for hosting one student or $700 for hosting two students. The student does not need their own room. They can share a room with another student or with one of your children and the program will even provide a mattress if you need one.


Maui Now’s Malika Dudley interviewed Chase and Tenessa Cavitt for more details. You can review the three week schedule and application process below. If you are interested in becoming a host family email Tenessa at for more information. To view information on their website, click HERE.
