APEX Referral Program

Do you know someone who wants to make a difference in a student’s life and is passionate about new experiences?

APEX offers generous referral bonuses for anyone who successfully recommends a host family!

To qualify as a referred person, the following criteria must be met:

      • They are able and willing to host an international student with us
      • Live within a 20-minute radius of one of APEX’s partner schools
      • Have the means to transport a student to/from school and other extracurricular activities (busing where and when available)
      • Have no mandated reason preventing them from hosting a minor
$75 Amazon or Visa gift card:
      • Receive a one-time $75 Amazon or Visa gift card for every qualified referred person you send who fully completes the Homestay application and vetting process.
      • Referred persons must be new to APEX and have yet to be in contact with us.
      • The referred person must have made first contact with APEX after this program started on June 14th, 2022
      • The referred person must list you as referring them on their Homestay Application for you to receive your referral bonus
$500 Amazon or Visa gift card:
      • Same criteria as above
      • Receive an additional one-time $500 Amazon or Visa gift card when someone you refer is “successfully” matched with an international student
      • A match is marked “successful” when the student has lived with the host family for one month with no plans to relocate – a bonus paid out shortly after that
      • This $500 Amazon or Visa gift card is one per referred host, regardless of the number of students placed with the host. However, there is no cap on the number of successful referral bonuses issued to a referring person for multiple successfully matched hosts.
