Mission Statement

To create opportunities for greater tolerance and understanding between Americans and peoples of the world. ... exchange for change...


ERDT/SHARE! is a global non-profit educational foundation that has been providing international student exchange services to host families and international teens since 1974.

SHARE! places 600 international high school exchange students a year, all between the ages of 15 and 18 with volunteer host families. SHARE! students have their own spending money for personal expenses as well as medical insurance.

Host families- with or without children- provide a warm meal at the dinner table and the genuine desire to SHARE! their home with an international child. The students attend the local high school closest to their host family's home.

I recommend this because it shows me a different path to be a volunteer to make people different.

Our family hosted exchange students 6 time and will host 2 for the coming school year. We love the kids and they keep us young, active and laughing as we are empty nesters. It is not hard. Have an open heart and love for teens. The kids are well screened and we got to pick ones that matched our family's interests!

They have great students from different countries.. and the local coordinators are always doing different activities with the kids. Helps them get to see what other kids are in the area.
