SHARE! is a global non-profit educational foundation that has been providing international student exchange services to host families and international teens since 1974.

SHARE! places 500 international exchange students a year between the ages of 15-18 with volunteer host families. Traditional two-parent families with or without children, single parents or adults, and retired couples all make wonderful host families.

Host families provide: A bed, 3 meals a day, friendship and a desire to share American culture. The host family may choose their own student that best fits into their family from over 25 countries like: Germany, Spain, Mexico, Switzerland, China, Italy, and more!

SHARE! Students all speak English, come fully medically insured and with their own spending money for personal expenses. They attend the host families local high school for a school year.

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.
