The YEAR program partners with the Council on International Educational Exchange to provide home stays for the Russian participants during their studies in the United States. Students stay with American families and gain an authentic experience about the U.S. society, culture, and values. The program works closely with each family to provide a comfortable living environment for students.  

Hosting a YEAR student is a rewarding opportunity to learn about Russian culture, and help participants immerse themselves into their new U.S. homes. The program seeks families willing to welcome one or two Russian students, provide a bedroom and bed, place to study, meals and transportation support.
