For any family that is participating in this summer's program, we offer the Explore Japan referral program. As we rely on community networking to find new participants, we welcome these referrals! We know that many new families who are interested in participating in our program have many questions and many concerns about the program and the hosting experience. That is reasonable, since it does involve having a person from another country/culture living in your home and becoming part of your family.
Thus, we believe personal referrals from friends, neighbors, relatives, classmates, etc. is the best way to find new and great families to participate. Additionally, many hosts often find it is helpful to have a friend or family member in your network who is also participating to help share transportation, after program activities etc. So, we offer the following for any family who refers another family to our program for the summer of 2016.
**Please note that to qualify your family must be referenced in the "Referred By" section of the application.**
