In-home interviews are required before a student departs their home country and before a student can move into a new home. Please take into consideration CDC guidelines regarding mask-wearing and social distancing and if you feel uncomfortable entering a host family’s home, ensure you speak with volunteer leaders in your area team to find another volunteer who can conduct the interview.
For applications which were previously transferred with only a virtual interview, volunteers must conduct a follow-up in-home visit prior to the student’s departure from their home country. A student will not be placed with a family in which an in-home visit has not been conducted. Please note that if different volunteers conducted the virtual and follow-up visits, the volunteer who conducted the in-home visit will not be eligible to do the 30/60-day visit. The volunteer who conducted the original virtual interview may do so.
