Learn about another culture

Hosting an exchange student with EF Foundation for Foreign Study is the perfect way to bring the world into your home. Your host student will be eager to tell you all about his or her home country, family traditions and culture. You and your family can learn a few words of another language, sample new foods, and make a profound personal connection. This experience will give you the opportunity to get an in-depth understanding of the world outside our borders.

Do a World of Good

With your help, an international student transforms from wide-eyed newcomer to cherished family member and high school friend. Student exchange is about more than "right now." It is a vital part of public diplomacy, as the warmth and caring you give to a student will make them ambassadors for America throughout their lives. And not only do students spread the good word about America abroad, they often remain friends for life!

Join the EF Foundation Family

EF Foundation is committed to making international exchange benefit everyone. We work hard to get students ready for their transition into American life, and at the same time give our families the tools to be prepared and confident hosts. You will:

  • Select a student who shares your interests
  • Receive local training and support from a coordinator in your area
  • Count on 24/7 support from our national offices in Boston
