Building International Forever Friendship

20 French and Spanish Teens coming soon. Enjoy an International Staycation. Have fun? Make new friends. Great volunteer experience for the whole family!

ALLENTOWN, PA, USA, June 2, 2022 / — We are seeking volunteer families to host our students. Compass USA has fostered volunteer homestays since 2000. When the borders closed in 2020, we were disappointed to have our homestays cancelled. We have missed hosting for the past two years. Finally, our students are returning and they are eager to make friends and explore our beautiful communities.

After two years of inactivity, it has been extremely difficult to get restarted. We urgently need interested volunteers to host our students.

Our students are 14-18 years old. Several have been waiting almost three years to come to Lehigh Valley!

Antione – 15 years (French): I love tennis, rocket science and books, horse riding, ski and soccer. My parents are vets so we have a lot of animals.

Amelie – 15 years (French) I have three sisters. I love to travel so I am so happy to be able to discover a new country with you! I love to read, shop,see my friends, run, bike and generally play sports!

Victoria – 15 years (French) I have one brother, one sister, two half brothers and one cat, one fish and one hamster (Chanel). I love fashion and modern jazz dance.

Alexis – 16 years (French boy) I have three brothers and one sister. I do a lot of sports, includind Parkour, running, cross-fit, skateboarding and biking. My hobbies are doing mechanics because I am a huge fan of cars and motorbikes.

Ane – 17 years (Spanish girl) I live with my parents and my little sister. I have lots of hobbies, but the main ones are cooking, basketball, bicycling, listening to music and visiting the beach with my friends.

Joan – 16 years (Spanish boy): I live with my parents and my brothers. I am on the swim team and enjoy videogames, travel and the cinema.

Nagor – 16 years (Spanish girl) I live with my parents and my sister. I enjoy many hobbies, but my favorite is singing and musi
