Seeking LA Host Families!



Make room for one of ISLA’s Language Ambassadors (LAs) to stay with your family by finally unpacking that extra bedroom in your home.   

Please be in touch with Kim Gelperin or Meggin Gregory, the Volunteer LA Coordinators, if you’re interested, you have questions, and/or want to be put on our Host Family list.

To host an LA, you must provide one private bedroom (the bathroom can be shared).

Generally, there are two seasons to host:

Fall: mid-August through mid-January

Spring: mid-January through mid-June

Create a lifelong cultural exchange with one of our LAs in addition to finding your old records.  The benefits are endless.

Spirit Store Update

All of the orders placed this fall have been delivered! Any questions regarding size exchanges please contact Laura Tellier at
