Host Family Wanted!

CVS Seminar provides Homestay program for 2 to 4 weeks.

We are finding for new hosts who are willing to host the students.



August 12th (Sat) night to 31st (Thu) morning (19 nights)



  • Meals: Please provide 2 meals (breakfast & dinner)
  • Communication: Please communicate with them in English
  • Bedroom: 2 students can stay in 1 room, and living room is good enough for stay if you do not have any extra guest rooms.

The safety of the students is our priority. 


We would be assigning 2 to 4 students per family (could be 1 based on your situation).

 The payment will be as follows (may be changed):

2 students: $70/stay
3 students: $100/stay
4 students: $125/stay



Meeting time for classes will be 9:00am in the morning and they will return home around 6:00 pm every night (except for night with Iron Chef Contest). Every Sunday is a free day to spend time at church and host families. The details of schedules will be informed shortly.


Preferred Locations

 We prefer to have classes and activities in Pasadena. Therefore, we are looking for host family located within 30 minutes from Pasadena area. 
If otherwise, we would appreciate if you could take students to the subway/bus station nearby.



CVS program selects top students from Japanese Universities. They are prescreened outstanding students and we are confident that you will love them. We will send the list of students once we have assigned the host families. There will be 6 teams this time, thus attending to at least 6 different churches.
