Our host family program is one of the most important community links for our scholars. Host families welcome a new GABC student into their home as a member of their family one weekend each month, ideally throughout her four years of high school. Host families offer scholars a “home away from home” and an opportunity to experience the community by participating in normal everyday family activities – from chores to family meals to social functions and sports activities. This link is tremendously important to our GABC students, who often form strong familial relationships with their host family and certainly look forward to these monthly 'get aways.' The relationships between host families and scholars are incredibly significant, and frequently result in life-long friendships.
