We extend this invitation to you to partner with the Host Family Program through the Dodge City Community College Host Family Program. This program is designed to help ease the transition for students who are new to college life by:
Providing friendship and support (non-financial) to students away from home( Out of State)
Introducing students to Dodge City and
Providing real –life experiences for students apart from the everyday college perspective
Students remain on campus and do not live with host families, but may visit host family homes. In addition to occasional meals with host families, various in town outings, are also acceptable as are phone calls.
The Host Family Program is hopeful of sponsoring four formal gatherings each year.
- An early fall orientation reception
- A Parent/Host Parent Weekend reception
- A Fall Potluck Dinner
- A Spring Gathering in March.
The Host Family Program Steering Committee will organize these gatherings.
The committee arranges the matches between the families and students from the applications and participates in the events above. Dodge City Community College - Host Family
