World Heritage has been designated as an Exchange Visitor program by the United States Department of State and conducts its programs in accordance with the standards established by the U.S. Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET). World Heritage offers qualified students 15 - 18 years old from over 15 countries to spend a high school school year (or semester) with a volunteer host family.
