looking for host family in Zurich or Basel

My son, a 16 y.o second year high school boy ( from canton de Vaud, Switzerland) is looking for a host family in Zürich or Basel. He is a French native speaker.

Duration: one year ( sep 2022-2023).

Any one can advise how to find a host family? School doesn't help at all for this, just said, do it yourself

thank you for your help.

Best regards,

Michelle

Re: looking for host family in Zurich or Basel

Can't help at all sorry. But how ridiculous, you'd think the schools would team up and do direct swaps with pupils going in the opposite direction

Maybe join Basel and Zürich FB groups and try to find parents in a similar situation whose child you could host at the same time??

There are organisations that organise such exchanges. Here's a link (in German) that list a few of them.

Edit: This might be exactly what you're looking for (and it's in English too!): https://www.movetia.ch/en/network/lo...ntonal-offices

Contact the school he'll be going to and ask them?
