My host family is in my heart and I will remember them - always! They are such awesome people and without them I wouldn't know what to do! - Lena, IE-USA Exchange Student


Open your home to an exchange student and give the gift of "family!" Many host families enjoy a lifelong connection with their student. And with many students eagerly awaiting news of their new host family, we will help make sure we find the right student for your family.

We're committed to leaving NO child behind, but we need your help!

Unable to host, but still want to be involved? Our Local Coordinator role could be the perfect fit for you!

We're happy to provide personalized training and ongoing support, marketing materials, payment for student placements, and international travel incentives.

We need your help promoting student exchange in your local community, identifying and screening potential host families, maintaining monthly contact with exchange students and host families, and providing additional support as needed.

A little bit about International Experience USA (iE-USA):

iE-USA is a non-profit student exchange organization that is approved by the US Department of State and fully listed with the Council on Standards for International Educational Travel.

Our students are between the ages 15-18, and originate from Germany, Spain, Austria, Italy, Thailand, and more. Our young adventurers need host families and a safe, caring environment while they attend an American high school for one or two semesters. Traditional and non-traditional families including retired couples, young couples, domestic partners, singles, multi-generational families, etc. are encouraged to apply as hosts.

Host families provide a private or a shared bedroom (with host sibling of the same gender), three meals a day, and reasonable transportation. Exchange students cover their own personal expenses and medical insurance.

Open your heart and home to an international student - they can't wait to meet their new American family!
