Mission Statement

AYUSA promotes global learning and leadership through high school exchange programs. We offer a unique, richly personal experience for students, volunteer families, host high schools and local communities. AYUSA reaches across interpersonal and international borders, celebrating worldwide community through the spirit, character and promise of our youth.

Description

AYUSA provides excellent educational opportunities for international students who wish to study at an American high school and experience American family life. Foreign students learn English, gain an understanding of American culture and lifestyle, create a "home away from home", and build lifetime friendships. Students report many other benefits from their year in the United States, including:

  • improved proficiency in American English
  • a broader perspective on world issues
  • a new appreciation of their own families and countries
  • increased self-confidence
  • better understanding of U.S. institutions and culture
  • the competitive advantage of international experience when seeking college admissions and employment
  • more tolerance of cultural and political differences
