Do you want to give a young international student an experience of a life time? Humanity in Action is looking for people who will host a foreign student for about 3 weeks in June; our program runs from June 6 – June 28, 2024 (arrival June 5 or 6, departure around June 29 to be arranged with the individual family/host).

As a host or host family one must be able to offer the student a room of their own and be located in or around Copenhagen, preferably near an S-line. Humanity in Action offers some meals and transport during the program. On week days, Fellows are usually occupied between 9-18, most days Fellows will meet at 9 at our Fellowship location: Karens Minde Kulturhus in Sydhavnen, near Sjælør St. In addition to this, the role of Humanity in Action host or host family is flexible and can be as much or as little as you and/or your family has time and energy for.

“We are a family of five with two boys who are 11 and 13 and a girl who is 16. The last couple of years we have had young students from Humanity in Action living with us and it has been a great success. It puts an ordinary family life into perspective to hear how other young people have grown up, and it always adds something good when there is another language ​​involved. As a host family, it is also inspiring to teach young people who are engaged to getting to know and follow Humanity in Actions programs. It contributes with one extra dimension in this year’s brightest month for everyone children as well as adults”.

– Caroline Melchior, former host mother

It is inspiring to get to know young and dedicated people.
