International Cultural Youth Exchange
Volunteer abroad while staying at a local host-family for a truly immersive cultural experience
If you are up for a true immersion experience this website has a lot to offer. Along with Learning Enterprises, ICYE is one of the volunteer programs that have volunteers live in host families of their placement. In some regions that may involve getting out of your comfort zone a little bit. However, if you truly wish to deeply engage with the culture you are exploring, this may be exactly what you are looking for. They do charge a fee for your accommodation, food etc but I haven't been able to figure out how much that is.
