In People Like Us, you can host a non-reciprocal exchange just to make you feel good, or you can do it for a Globe, PLU's token system. When you earn a Globe, you can use it to travel to someone else's home.

A homeschool-family friendly home exchange is an arrangement where two parties swap homes with one another for a specified period. Families who homeschool can benefit by living in a different location, experiencing new cultures for both parents and children alike, and learning from the local environment. It’s a great opportunity to supplement existing curricula with real world experiences and travel. Not to mention, it’s a very cost-effective way to travel while preventing any delays during the formative years of a child’s education.

Communication is key in order to establish expectations and specific homeschool-related needs. Discuss expectations, rules, and preferences with your exchange partners. Be flexible and adaptable to new surroundings and routines, and help identify those opportunities for your partners. Take advantage of local educational opportunities and immerse yourselves in the culture, and help guide and facilitate that for the other family.
