Mission Statement

Global Understanding Through International Exchange

EF Foundation for Foreign Study is a worldwide, non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging cultural awareness through international education and exchange. Today, EF Foundation reaches over oceans and across borders to teenagers around the world, providing semester and year-long high school placements in nine countries. With the support of host families, high schools, and EF Foundation representatives on five continents, we open the world for today's students and tomorrow's leaders.

Description

EF Foundation for Foreign Study connects talented, enthusiastic high school students from around the world with caring families across the country. Together, we build bonds of friendship and trust that have the power to change the world.

Since 1979, our team of dedicated volunteers, local coordinators, and staff has helped over 90,000 students from nearly 40 countries participate in international exchange programs. Our tradition of excellence, combined with our unparalleled support on the local and national levels, has made us the largest facilitator of high school year programs for exchange students coming into the United States.

A Local Organization with Global Reach We are committed to making international exchange benefit everyone. We work hard to get students ready for their transition into American life, and at the same time give our coordinators and host families the tools to be prepared and confident hosts. Our community-based focus with international reach sets EF Foundation apart.
