Host a student, change a life.


NAISS was established to facilitate the acquisition of conversational English in the most thorough and expedient manner possible. To achieve this, NAISS immerses Chinese youth in the homes of happy, healthy, Christian, native English-speaking, homes.

The focus of our educational program is threefold: The first goal is to help Chinese youth overcome Mute English. The second is to help Chinese youth integrate into western culture and society. Finally, Chinese youth will experience the positive, healthy atmosphere of a Christian family home.

You're just five simple steps away from becoming a host family!
