For US families interested in hosting a Dominican student from Doulos Discovery School.


Do you feel called to serve?

Why not host an international student in your home? Being hospitable is a great way to show the love of Jesus and get involved in Doulos from your own town.

Our desire is to give all Doulos Discovery School students an opportunity to experience another country and culture, expand their worldview, and attend school and serve in another country.

We are looking for Christian families willing to host Doulos high school students from 6 weeks up to a full school semester.

If this opportunity is for you, please contact:

Doulos Ministries Study Abroad Director

Q. Can a Doulos student study abroad at ANY school?

A. For Dominican students to be able to study abroad we need the U.S. high school to have an I-17 (issued paperwork from the government) to be able to issue an I-20 in order for Doulos students to be eligible to apply for a VISA. If it is a private school, tuition would need to be waived as well.

Q. Can I guarantee my student will speak English?

A. Yes, all our students are bilingual!

Q. What do I do if there is a problem?

A. We desire our host families to be just that – families. As a host mom/dad our students NEED YOU. Please parent them and direct them through this new journey as you would you own child. We check-in with the student during the first month and also ½ way through their time abroad, but always know we are available to step in and help whenever you need. Please contact Becky Zweber if you need assistance (
