Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry,and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

Hosting is your chance to change the world for the better!
Our purpose at BFF is to promote world peace through cultivating opportunities for cultural and educational exchanges. These exchanges allow people to learn more about each other’s core values. We bring the international traveler and the host family together to create meaningful relationships through which we celebrate our differences and similarities.
When you agree to become a host family, you are helping us propel our vision of a more peaceful world into existence. By opening your heart and home to an exchange visitor, you are creating a connection like none other, a connection that has the potential to change the world. While your student is here, he or she will gain a new perspective on American culture. Equally important, a new perspective on his or her culture will be gained by you as the host family.
