Mission Statement

American Cultural Exchange Service (ACES) is to provide high quality international educational, cultural and sports exchange experiences to individuals from the U.S. and foreign countries in order to promote global understanding. ACES believes that only through interaction can the peoples of the world truly understand each other, establish friendships and promote world peace.


Established in 1995, ACES is a nonprofit organization designated by the US State Department to administer the High School/Homestay Exchange Program for foreign high school students, who are between 15 and 18 years old. Students spend one semester or one school year living with an American host family and attending local high school. Currently, ACES is working with more than 40 countries.

This organization treats all of their employees as important team members. They are generous and are ready to provide any necessary support. I have never enjoyed working with a group of people as much as I have at ACES. Sherri B.

ACES is the third organization that I've worked for as a coordinator for foreign exchange students. I've worked with them for six years now and don't see myself ever stopping. They are incredibly supportive, kind, friendly and genuinely care about their students and volunteers.

We are hosting 2 Youth Ambassador Exchange students from China ages 14 & 15. They are the nicest boys and are enjoying their school experience! ACES is super supportive too.
