Being a Host Family

What are Host Families?

Host Families play a vital role in the Pearson College UWC community, acting as surrogate families and providing much-needed respites for students.

Most Pearson students are far away from their own families, many for the first time, and need a home away from home. Families take their student(s) to their house for a night or a weekend or for one of our longer breaks. Students love to get a break from campus. They usually develop close relationships with their Host Families and describe their time with them as one of the most rewarding experiences of their two-year stay at Pearson College UWC. The experience is equally cherished by the nearly 200 Host Families involved in the program.
