Community Action With Global Impact: International Student Exchange Program


Today we want to introduce you to the International Student Exchange (ISE).

There’s a huge difference between vacationing and exploring a different country on your own and actually living with and seeing the country through the eyes of the local people. Not only do you have the opportunity to learn and experience the culture and the language in a much more personal way, you will also gain new perspectives, broaden your world view, and build long-lasting friendships.

Find out more about the International Student Exchange program, how you can become a host family and how your child can participate in the program and spend time abroad.
