FLAG is a U.S.-based nonprofit international exchange organization proud of its 25-year history of successfully managing the responsibilities of being a U.S. State Department designated sponsor. Since 1989, FLAG has been dedicated to providing high-quality international exchange experiences that transform the lives of high school students, host families, and communities throughout the world. More than 5,000 students and families have been touched by FLAG throughout the years.
Each year we have students who apply to study within the United States and look to become part of an American host family for one academic year or semester (5-10 months). Students attend a local high school as a full-time student.
Hosting an exchange student is the sharing of cultures between an international youngster and your family: customs, friendship, personalities, even the food and the holiday traditions - it's a growth and learning experience that touches hearts for a lifetime!
