But, in the process of hosting you find out that you and your family gain so much. Student’s arriving for 2nd semester 21-22 school year. Is this the year you start changing lives?
Students speak English, have their own money for all personal, school and entertainment expenses, they have medical and accident insurance, are expected to follow our program rules as well as your household rules, and are enrolled in the local High School.
Make this year the most exciting & enriching ever! Kids come from many different countries including, but not limited to Germany, Spain, France, Japan, Bolivia, Mexico, Thailand, Vietnam and Italy. Many of them still need a loving home!

About ERDT/SHARE! High School Exchange
2601 Ocean Park Blvd, Suite 322, Santa Monica, CA 90045, US
To create opportunities for greater tolerance and understanding between Americans and peoples of the world.
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.
