ORGANIZATION: A Journey Thru Education

We have a wonderful opportunity for you! Would you like to make a difference in a young person’s life while learning about another culture? Are you interested in creating and building friendships that make everlasting memories? Do you have a loving heart and space to share in your home? A Journey Thru Education and NWSE (Northwest Student Exchange) are looking for you! Here is your opportunity to host one of our amazing exchange students.

Can you provide:

  • A bedroom (which can be shared with a host sibling)?
  • Three meals each day?
  • Transportation to and from school and activities (if school bus service is unavailable)?
  • A loving family?

All other expenses (activity fees, personal items, etc.) are paid for by the student and their parents and students will have their own medical insurance. Exchange students are ages 15 through 18 and come from various countries.

Students are carefully screened and come from wonderful families. We will arrange for your student’s enrollment in your local public high school and will provide 24/7 support during the entire program year. As boutique agencies, we are very attentive and involved in order to provide the best experience possible for you and our students.

We have Local Coordinators in your area who are excited to work with you!

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to foster the international relationships between the youth of countries from around the world in a philanthropic organization committed to cultural exchange, community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. The Purpose of UCEUS is to provide opportunities for students to become involved in global community service and to also enjoy their international relationships they develop in educational and cultural activities.


Youth from other countries come to the USA to learn about American traditions and culture. However the exchange becomes a two way street as our students share their own cultures, traditions, holidays and language with their host families.

Profound changes are occurring all around us. It has become an important and essential task for Americans to cope with such change and broaden and strengthen the ties of mutual understanding that binds the hearts of various nations.

Americans can undertake the exchange of young people who are going to shoulder the future of their countries, including the exchange of students and other young people. It is very necessary to expand the thinking of our youth around the world through living our lives as an example of global understand. We can do this by opening up our lives, homes and families to an international student that is wanting to come to America and learn all they can about us.
