Volunteer Host Families- with or without children- are needed to make a difference in a young person's life. Host an international exchange student for the upcoming semester or academic year and do just that!

Our Host Families

SHARE! Host families are as diverse as our students! Host families can be two-parent households with young children or teenagers, single parent families, families with adopted
children, foster parents, as well as couples or single people who do not have children or who have grown children. Host families provide basic room and board for the students while they attend the local high school closest to their host family's home.

Families are able to select the student that best suits their family.

SHARE!'s Amazing Students

SHARE! students, between the ages of 15 and 18 all speak English, have spending money, and medical insurance. They come from over 30 countries, all around the world like Germany, Belgium, Ecuador, Brazil, China, France, Sweden,

About ERDT/SHARE! High School Exchange

Location:

2601 Ocean Park Blvd, Suite 322, Santa Monica, CA 90045, US

Mission Statement

To create opportunities for greater tolerance and understanding between Americans and peoples of the world.

Description

Each year, the SHARE! High School Exchange Program selects and sponsors approximately 750 exchange students, between the ages of 15 and 18 years old, to experience life in the United States by living with Host Families and attending local public high schools for one semester or a full academic year.

The goal of ERDT is to provide opportunities for people of different cultures to come together to learn about other points of view and ways of life. We at ERDT believe that cross-cultural understanding is fundamental to developing mutual respect and tolerance between Americans and people from around the world. Our programs provide cultural experiences that foster good will, tolerance, and understanding through a positive people-to-people experience.

SHARE! is well-respected in the exchange community (overseas agents, host families and coordinators) specifically for our personal approach to student exchange. We are a medium-sized organization--large enough to provide stability and variety, but small enough to maintain a personal touch. Being as selective as we are, we can maintain a family-like atmosphere that extends to our field staff, host families, and exchange students.


Prospective students undergo a screening process that includes written and spoken English language tests, the submission of academic and medical records, student and host family questionnaires, interviews and more.

Our coordinators are well-trained SHARE! EPCs undergo an extensive training process and are given specific tools to help them support both families and students through the exchange process.
