The Host Family Experience The Washington Ireland program host families open their homes to WIP students each summer, and are at the heart of the DC experience.

While in DC, students live with WIP’s special community of Host Families. Many of our Host Families have opened their homes to WIP students for more then a decade and are a key part of the WIP cultural exchange experience.

Community events such as the WIP Pub Quiz, Host Family BBQs, and the Karaoke Night all bring together the students and Host Families for good fun and great memories

Whilst the summer can be a very busy time for WIP Students with work placements and service projects during the week and leadership curriculum events in the evenings, the Host Families often become great companions and friends throughout the journey.
