Be a host family!

The Burbank Sister City Committee (BSCC) is now accepting applications to host visiting exchange students from our sister city, Incheon, South Korea. Our Korean guests will be visiting Burbank for two weeks, from June 21 – July 5, 2016, and you are invited to share your home with them!

To qualify as a Host Family, you must agree to all of the following conditions:
  • Be a Burbank resident
  • Have a suitable household that provides privacy and comfort for the visiting student. You will have the option to host for either one or two weeks.
  • Have a safe household equipped with fire alarms/smoke detectors as prescribed by the California Building & Fire Codes.
  • Have everyone in the household age 18 and older fingerprinted by the City of Burbank with Livescan technology prior to hosting.
  • Assume responsibility for all costs associated with the student’s visit, including food, entertainment and gifts (approximate cost is $550).
Completed applications must be submitted by May 2, 2016. This is an exciting opportunity for your entire family to learn about a different culture and to share your home life with a young person from another land.
