Families who participate as hosts for international exchange students serve the mission of De Smet Jesuit by nurturing the development of culturally competent men for and with others. Here are three of the many benefits for families who choose to serve as hosts:
- Host families come away from the experience with in-depth knowledge of and an appreciation for a different culture.
- Host students and their international visitors build social skills and meaningful interpersonal relationships as they learn from one another.
- Host families gain fresh perspectives on American culture as they experience it through the eyes of someone visiting for the first time.
