Host an International Guest
Since 2011, 250+ TVS students and faculty have home-hosted 260+ international guests from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Denmark, England, Germany, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Scotland, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland. Last year, 70 TVS students hosted students from Germany, Hungary, Japan, Sweden, and Taiwan virtually in our first Virtual Hosting Exchange.
International in-person guests stay for 10 days to 10 months, and we are always looking for new hosts, and Virtual Hosting lasts throughout the school year, officially, and for a lifetime for many.
This academic year (2022-23), we will host about 25 guests from Bolivia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Scotland, Sweden, and Switzerland!
