Host Families

CIP Participants are adult professionals visiting and working in Morgantown from mid‐August to mid‐November.  Participants are offered three to four different homes to live in, in order to provide a variety of experiences in American Culture. Each home offers a uniqueness that adds to increased value and appreciation of the U.S. way of life.  Being a Volunteer Host Family gives you a chance to learn how people from other cultures live, work, and think– all while sharing your home and family traditions. Don’t miss this great opportunity!

Disclaimer: WVU does not participate in the Host Family process. WV CIP is fully responsible for selecting and securing all of the homestays that will be used for the duration of the WV CIP program. All arrangements made by the WV CIP Community Board will provide CIP participants with Host Families in the Morgantown community.
