Youth Exchange

A two-part long-term or short-term program.

Part 1:

We send local students ages 15 - 19 around the world to attend high school learning language, life skills, and how to thrive in different cultures and social situations.

Part 2:

We host international high school students within our community to achieve the same goals as well as learn about their lives and cultures.

We need our community's help for this program to succeed. The requirements to host a student is easy to achieve and the benefits are priceless. Please contact us if you're interested in hosting a student for a couple months. All household make-ups are considered.
