Do you know that you could earn up to €1100 hosting an international student for 2 weeks this summer? Maybe you considered hosting an international student in your home, but aren’t sure where to start? We have teamed up with Hebe Adventures who match students to suitable host families for the experience of a lifetime, for both the student and the host family.

Benefits of Hosting an International Student

Connect Your Family to the World

Hosting an international student gives your family an opportunity to connect with people from around the world. Students are usually matched to a family with children of a similar age and with similar interests. Many go on to become lifelong friends and learn from each other about their different cultures, customs and of course their language.

Earn Extra Cash

Hosting a student gives you an opportunity to earn some extra cash. Rates vary depending on the time of year and length of stay, so do look at those before making up your mind.

Hebe Adventures pride themselves on having the best host families in Ireland! They pay them accordingly, with premium rates of up to €1100 paid for hosting an international student for 2 weeks.

Full Support

Hosting an international student can be daunting. As you know, all children are different and while some come and settle in with no issues, it is important to confirm that a support team will be available 24/7 to help with any issues or questions that may arise during a student’s stay or indeed before or after.

The team at Hebe Adventures is on hand 24/7 to offer support throughout the student’s stay. From Dublin to Galway and Donegal to Kerry and everywhere in between, they have you covered, ensuring a stress-free stay for everyone.

Summer Camps & More

Hosting an international student

An international student will often attend a local summer camp whilst staying with you. If your child is attending too, they can help show them the ropes and introduce them to all their friends.

Currently Hebe Adventures have hosting opportunities throughout Ireland but especially for these regions where students have opted to attend summer camps in: Dublin, Carlow, Kildare, Meath, Westmeath, Waterford, Clare & Sligo.

You are in Control

Once you sign up to become a host, you may be offered opportunities right away. It is really up to you which ones you accept. As the host, you are in complete control and can pick and choose opportunities to suit your family life and lifestyle.

For instance, you may be able to host more than one student, this is usually acceptable so long as both students don’t have the same native language. Or you may decide to take a student for 2 weeks this time and for a month next time. You may only want to host in the summer or you may want to only host during term time, these are all things that you set and manage.

Sharing Your Family Life

Hosting an international student

Sharing your home with an international student gives them a look into everyday life in Ireland. They get to experience what their peers in another country enjoy and how it differs from what they do back home and what the similarities are. It is the perfect way to enhance your family life and give everyone a new outlook and opportunities.

If you have children aged between 7 and 18, sign up to become a host family with Hebe Adventures, and reap the rewards for your family.
