Some study abroad and exchange programs send kids to stay with host families without adequately checking their environment, qualifications, and safety.
What does your program do?
Youth have been placed in unsafe housing, with abusive families, or worse. In some countries, fire codes and other safety regulations are nonexistent.
Before sending your child to stay with a host family, make sure they are being sent to a safe environment.
Before sending your child abroad, know what to investigate before you go with ClearCause Foundation's StaySafe Program.
