Mission Statement

The CIEE mission is one shared by many of us in international education: "to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world." To fulfill that mission, CIEE provides both outbound international education experiences for university students, faculty, and administrators, and study, work, and internship opportunities for people coming into the U.S.

Description

Bring the world to your home! Become a CIEE host family

Welcoming an exchange student to your family is like opening a window to a different world. You and your family will not only gain a new family member, you will also learn about a different culture, its values and traditions.

CIEE's USA High School students stay with their host families for either 5 or 10 months while attending a US high school. The cultural exchange between your family and the student will help you both to gain a deeper understanding of human values that unite all nations across the world. But what really makes this cross-cultural experience so exceptional are the relationships that evolve. By opening your home and your hearts to a young person from another culture, you quickly establish strong bonds. This wonderful relationship can turn out to be a lifelong friendship!
