Face The World Foundation

hands around the world

Make dreams come true by hosting an international exchange student for the school year! Our fully certified non-profit exchange foundation sponsors high school students for the school year.

We are looking for HOST FAMILIES to open their hearts and home to these students. As a Volunteer Host Family, you provide an opportunity for the student to realize the dream of coming to the U.S., you help your community grow by supporting cultural exchange, and you will be providing your family with an experience and education that you could never get from a book.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide all participants--students, host families, schools, and host communities--with a meaningful experience that promotes global awareness and cultural understanding. Our students and host families find that they make friendships that will last a lifetime.


FTW's organizational structure is comprised of a network of Regional Managers, Community Representatives, and a National Office Staff who are trained in the philosophy and guidelines of the program. A Community Representative is responsible for interviewing and selecting suitable Host Families, working with local high schools, and supervising the international students placed in their area.
