One of the very positive features of this program is the opportunity for the Chinese students to experience American family life by living with a host family.  American families have a wonderful opportunity to welcome a Chinese high school student into their home and open their heart to learning more about the world.  Host families are provided a monthly stipend as compensation for food, overhead and transportation.
