Host families for exchange students sought in Fresno, Clovis

Ayusa International, a nonprofit supporter of high school exchange student programs, is looking for families in Fresno and Clovis to host international students.

Applications will be accepted from families and single people. Hosts provide the exchange student with three meals per day and a bedroom. An Ayusa representative will work with the hosts and students throughout the year.

Ayusa’s exchange students are 15-18 years old, fully insured, bring their own spending money and speak English.

Applicants must complete an online application, submit references and pass a background check. After the application is submitted, an Ayusa representative will schedule an in-home interview. Once a family is fully approved, it may select the Ayusa student it would like to host.

Anyone interested in the program can learn more by going to or calling (888) 552-9872.
