Our participants are expected to be an ambassador for their country and the BFF program. We tell our participants it is their job to make everyone they meet want to visit them in their home countries!  We are working together as a team to build bridges across cultures and to increase global awareness. In order for this goal to be met fully, we need all participants to do the following:

  • Follow all state and federal laws
  • Follow host family guidelines and expectations
  • Act as a member of the family, assist¬†with some household chores
  • Follow all school rules and expectations
  • Go to assigned classes, unless sick or previously excused
  • Discuss any issues with their BFF Community Advisor
  • Behave with respect and honesty
  • Speak English only (except when speaking to natural family in home country)
  • Pay for their own expenses outside of meals eaten at home
  • Share their culture with the community through presentations
