Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
PAX - Program of Academic Exchange is a non-profit educational organization that promotes and arranges international student exchange to foster the positive development of the world's young people and to support international peace, friendship and cross-cultural understanding.
Founded in 1990, PAX provides young people from the United States and abroad with opportunities to live with a family in another country and to study and travel abroad. Each year up to 600-800 high-school students participate in international exchange through PAX.
While PAX has a global vision, the organization works one student at a time. Committed to a quality program that is small and personal, PAX works exclusively with high school exchange. All PAX programs feature a homestay experience with a family abroad.
PAX has its headquarters in New York. The foundation works with community coordinators across the U.S. with more than 40 sending organizations around the world.
PAX is U.S. State Department Designated.
Exchange visitor programs are administered by the State Department. The State Department designates sponsors to administer individual programs and permits such sponsors to issue a DS2019 form, which students use to secure the J-1 exchange visitor visa. PAX is designated as an Exchange Visitor Program.
PAX is CSIET Listed. The Council on Standards for International Educational Travel (CSIET) has granted PAX a "full listing" in the CSIET Advisory List for the 2009-10 academic year. CSIET establishes standards to which international student exchange programs must adhere and a process for evaluating these programs annually.
